First and foremost I am a South African born in Cape Town and raised in Hermanus. Yes this place is awesome, no I don’t know what I am still doing here in the US 🙂
I studied Information Technology in Cape Town prior to taking a job with Siemens in Munich Germany. Three years later, I moved back to South Africa, where I worked my way up from a Software Support Engineer to a Systems Engineer at a small software company. That company was purchased by Kaplan, and I was relocated to Atlanta, US to create their US support department. I continued to grow in my career, becoming a VMware Engineer and Infrastructure Manager for their IT training business. I spent the following 4 years at AirWatch where I held multi roles from Sr Systems Engineer, Solutions Architect and Infrastructure Manager.
In my spare time I like being outdoors as much as possible with either playing golf, mountain biking or kayaking and of course, spend time with my wife and French bulldog Cody. Not a big fan of American sports however I do like to talk about rugby, golf, cars, travel and video games!
