About Me

My name is Peter Lapornik and I’d like to welcome you to this blog site containing bits and pieces from my professional life.

I’ve been working in the information technology sector for more than 20 years. Originally I’m from Australia and spent the first few years of my career working in a number of areas before specialising as a network engineer. Somewhere during that time, I got married and decided to permanently move to Cyprus. Working in Cyprus has been both a rewarding and challenging experience. Since the market is so much smaller, I’ve had to expand my skill set, working as a mixture between Technical Architecture, Engineering and Consulting roles.

When I’m not working, I’m either spending time with my kids, reading a book or watching a film. I’m also a keen long distance runner/explorer, spending a lot of my time running various trails throughout the island and elsewhere. I think my toughest run so far was the 80 km Two Castles Mountain Ultra which I ran by myself, in reverse, and throughout the night; it was definitely a challenge!
