I grew up in South-Africa’s spectacular Eastern Cape province. After school and university I worked in corporate London as an Analyst Programmer; mostly in financial services. During that time I was lucky enough to get married to Lene, the most wonderful person I’ve ever met.

In 2006 we moved back to the Eastern Cape. We founded a farm stall and a restaurant and I continued to consult to some of the biggest companies in South-Africa. Our family also grew with the addition of 2 girls, Elke (in 2006) and Cara (in 2009).

In 2013 I remotely joined a pharmaceutical software company situated in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and early in 2015 my family and I moved continents again to join the company mentioned before on a full-time basis. We currently live in Downingtown, PA; a great community in so many ways. and we’ve had no choice but to become Eagles fans – Go Birds!

I’ve been a certified Microsoft Professional since 2000.

My passions are Nature, Photography & Software. My absolute passion is for the African Wilderness. Everyone has to experience the deserts, plains or bushveld of Africa just once in their lives – there’s nothing like it!
