I don't know how I did it, but I got a PhD in quantum chemistry. But since there was no work in this area I
started my IT experience at IBM as a unix expert and later
on a systems management consultant for unix and NT systems.
Than I worked for BMC Software for 5 years as scheduling/software distribution/monitoring/ITIL expert.
Than I moved to the IAM work as security expert for Evidian.
And this is where I stand right now.
