About Mark van Dijk

"This is your once chance at life."

I'm a dedicated multi-tasker. I love to help emerging businesses flourish by offering consultancy, design and execution of diverse tasks pertaining to online presence.

Beyond my role as a stay-at-home dad and my support for my wife's career, in March of 2023 I have started up my freelance career. I specialize in Linux system design and administration and website design, in particular using WordPress.

I aspire to learn more about programming as well, in particular Haskell, OCaml, Perl, and Raku, alongside exploring modern web design with JavaScript.

Some of my hobbies include learning and speaking Japanese, learning about old and new world wines and wineries, podcasting and streaming which I sometimes on Twitch, and more.

I dedicate a portion of my time to serve as a volunteer board member, tech enthusiast, sysadmin, and webmaster at my local parish, and I've recently started as a volunteer at a national Catholic radio station.

Technologies and disciplines:

  • Linux (NixOS, Gentoo, Debian) and FreeBSD
  • Diverse Internet Protocols (incl. DNS, IMAP, SMTP)
  • Security (DNSSEC, DKIM, DMARC)
