Let us connect

I offer consultancy services, specialize in custom development, and create innovative apps. My base of operations is in the vibrant city of Cape Town, South Africa, and I am open to travelling for projects.

I launched my career in the consulting world, utilizing my expertise in Java and front-end technologies to deliver innovative solutions to clients. During this time, one of my clients introduced me to academia. I transitioned into a role as a developer at a university, where I collaborated with educators and researchers to enhance the institution's tech infrastructure. Subsequently, I made another transition, this time to a bank, where I eventually became the head of a fundamental division. This diverse experience honed my technical skills and sharpened my leadership abilities.

I'm passionate about technology and education and look forward to new challenges and opportunities in both fields.
