It's just me.

Hey there, my name is Christian Mohn

Come say hello to me on Twitter!

I live in Bergen, Norway, and I’m as old as the original Rocky movie. I currently work as a Senior Solutions Architect and Technical Lead SDDC for Proact IT Norge AS, working on building Norways best, and strongest, VMware SDDC practice, and I’m a firm believer in that software is indeed eating the world.

I’m an IT industry «veteran», podcaster, author and blogger that has survived over 20 years of real world IT experience. I’ve been running blog of some sorts for the better part of those 20 years too, which is kinda scary.

For some reason, I’m an nine time VMware vExpert (2011-2019), vExpert Cloud Management (2019) and an inaugural vExpert vSAN, VMware EUC Champion (2015-2019), ex-PernixPro, and four time Veeam Vanguard (2015-2019). I also hold various VMware certifications, and I’m also an SME for the VMware certification program.

Once upon a time, I also wrote a book called Learning Veeam® Backup & Replication for VMware vSphere.

I have also been featured as a cartoon, twice. Once for Rubrik who made trading cards for VMworld 2017, and once for Proact who made a rather spiffy animated video.

Currently serving as the vice-chairman of the the Norwegian VMware User Group (VMUG) leadership team and has helped launch VMUG in three Norwegian cities; Oslo, Bergen and Trondheim.

For more details on work experience, certifications and such, check LinkedIn. I tend to keep that updated.

For a more detailed list of content I’ve created elsewhere, have a look at this list.

On a more personal note, I’m a father of two, husband of one, and I have a potentially overshadowing passion for football – I’ve been a football coach for various girls teams in Bergen for a total of 11 years.

I prefer my coffee black as midnight on a moonless night, beer with taste, and Whisky that tastes like peat fire.

I have some stuff hosted on GitHub, including this entire site which is now published using Hugo. Previous incarnations of the site has been published using Wordpress.

As I’m a rather passionate hobby photographer, you can find most of my published photos on 500px. If, and I don’t know why, you want to know what music I’m listening to, check out

I’ve also published a few things over at Medium, some of which I’m actually kind of proud of.
