Hi, I’m Jerry.
I am Dutch.
I live in Sydney, Australia.
I remote-work for Heap in San Francisco.
Zone of Truth
I failed my Charisma saving throw, so just the truth… I’ve worked in IT now for about two decades in programming, management, analysis, architecture, devops, security, and policy/compliance.
Technology is my passion, but that’s just the tiny gears in a much larger complex whole. Of my off-time, I spend too much with visual entertainment and books, so yoga is my willing penance. And more recently D&D has started taking on a larger looming spectre.
This site is an ambitious project, and I suspect there is a 50⁄50 chance of it succeeding as intended.
You are transported to a different plane of existence.
You create an illusory copy of yourself; the illusion looks and sounds like you and accurately reflects your work experience but is intangible. If the illusion takes any damage, it disappears, and your job application fails.
