Will van Gulik

My interest in the Internet started around 1993 when I was connecting to remote machines across the world using telnet from my school, without exactly knowing how that was possible. In 1995, I went online by myself using a dial-up connection.

In 2001, I worked as a support clerk and then systems administrator; positions that would bring me closer to those details.

In 2007, I reached the DFZ and started exploring the marvels of BGP and peering as part of my daily job.

I started attending RIPE Meetings in 2014, got my own ASN in 2015 and started an IXP in 2017. I currently work for Saitis Networks, a FTTH/B network in Lausanne, Switzerland.
