About me

I’m a front-end web developer, sports enthusiast and avid traveller who lives in Cape Town, South Africa.

I matriculated from Wynberg Boys’ High School in 2000 and completed a computer science diploma at CTI in 2002.

Towards the end of 2002, I began my career at Generator Communications as a PHP developer. In 2006 I started working at RED-i as a Java developer and then I made the switch back to PHP development in 2010 at Hellocomputer. In 2012 I spent the entire year freelancing as a front-end web developer. From 2014 I worked at Next for just over 3 years.

Currently, I work for InQbate at Quint Group. Quint is an international fintech company who operates in the consumer finance market.

I was fortunate to go overseas at an early age, a holiday to the UK and Europe in 1993, I’ve continued to travel whenever possible. I’ve been on two trips to Australia to visit family, first in 1998 and again in 2009. In 2010 I went to visit my cousin who lives in Munich, Germany. We took part in the Craft BIKE Transalp mountain bike race. The route goes through Germany, Austria, Switzerland and finishes in Italy. We cycled just under 600 kilometers over the course of the 8 stages. At the end of 2012 I went on holiday to Thailand and Cambodia with my girlfriend and two mutual friends. In 2013 my girlfriend and I travelled to Turkey and in September 2014 we went to New York.

Our most recent adventure overseas saw us visit Spain and Portugal in December of 2016.

Whenever I have spare time, I enjoy cycling and running to keep fit and unwind after work. Also keen on photography, I enjoy taking photos of my travels whether close to home or overseas.

I’ve read some amazing books which have been an inspiration to me during my career. These are just a few of my favourite:

One of the things that I like most about the industry in which I work is how people share what they do. They provide insight into how and why they designed a product or website. They create tools to improve our workflow, most of which are free to use. And they push the boundaries, whilst setting the standards for us to follow. It is exciting to be apart of it.

I’ve credited some of those who have helped and motivated me over the years in my website’s humans.txt file.

Thanks for visiting.
