Curriculum Vitae

Personal Statement
Having spent many of my formative years in USA – My appetite for Technology and its application to business flourished when I returned to South Africa in 2004 and embarked on starting my first IT Support Company from my family breakfast table. My specialties have since sharpened over the years and range from Entrepreneurship, Business Analysis and Innovation in the IT space. Underpinned by a meticulous management and customer service driven outlook, I am not your average IT guy. I personify an ethos of motivated and hungry IT-preneurs who are moving and shaking the old world of business bringing companies to the bleeding edge of technology.
