I am Marcello Konings. 23 years old and I like to see my self as a technology loving, creative and ahead thinking IT professional who believes that future technologies should make our (work)life easier. In the past I worked for Aon as a network engineer and helped them design and build part of their now standardized (office)network. Besides that, I am an active member of the Dutch LAN-Party scene and my team and I organize events to connect gamers, eSporters and companies with each other.
