Hi there 👋

I'm Simon, a dad and an family person who pivoted into Technical Writing after 20 years in Data Engineering. My passion for this field shines through my highly-ranked blog,, where I delve into open-source data engineering, aiming to enrich our community with genuine insights.

My writing journey extends to platforms like Towards Data Science, freeCodeCamp, and Hackernoon. Since 2020, I've been acknowledged as a top writer in data engineering on Quora, and recently, I was honored as a top 25 Influencer and content creator on Databand.

At the core of my work is the Data Engineering Vault, a continuously curated hub of data engineering knowledge designed for interactive and explorative learning. It features over 100+ interconnected terms, each an opportunity for deeper understanding, enabling you to explore topics in a more connected, unlike traditional approaches.

I'm currently crafting a living book on Data Engineering Design Patterns (DEDP), freely accessible on Here, I regularly publish new chapters, eagerly incorporating your feedback to make it a collaborative knowledge of DE patterns.

My creative engine is fueled by a sophisticated PKM workflow, which aids in generating, organizing, and sharing ideas and content. I leverage tools like Obsidian and Neovim, specifically vim-motions, for efficient and idea-rich writing. I share much of this, including topics on data engineering, open-source, writing, and more, on my public Second Brain.

To delve deeper into my world, visit my GitHub projects, check out my Now Page, read My Pathless Path, see my Latest Gigs or explore ideas in my Newsletter. Thank you for visiting, and I look forward to connecting with you.

  • 💬 Ask me about data engineering, open-source, PKM, Second Brain, (Neo)Vim)
  • 😄 Pronouns: he/him
  • 🗣 Connect with me on LinkedIn or Twitter

I like writing about open-source data engineering and teaching what I have learned through my 20+ years. I hope to do this full-time one day. You can sponsor my work here.
