His company, GeekIT Consulting Inc., specializes in Linux, and for the past few years, in the design and deployment of Manhattan’s WMOS Open Systems (a supply chain solution designed by Manhattan Associates). Some of his clients are well known names in the Canadian industry (like Shoppers Drug Mart and Home Hardware).

MLUG Victor is also the founder of the Mississauga Linux User Group, the official LUG (Linux User Group) for Mississauga, ON.


Victor started using Linux in 2004 while working as a network support rep for 3Com. It quickly became a passion for him. His initial experience, like most Linux user enthusiast, was home based. He would spend hours and weekends building NAS, Apache, media servers, BSD firewalls and other “goodies”. At some point his network was bigger than most small business (you can view it below).

Wazem Network

Around 2007 he started a personal Linux blog at The blog was a bigger success than he expected, with an average of 4000 visits per month.

In 2008 Victor decided to make a career out of his passion and enrolled for a Linux/Unix administration course at Seneca College. This was around the same time he created MUMU (Mississauga Ubuntu MeetUp, later MLUG, Mississauga Linux User Group).
