The thoughts of an easily distracted software developer...


I’m a solution architect from Johannesburg, South Africa with interests ranging from technology (fairly obvious) to woodwork and the outdoors. I’ve recently founded a start-up with some colleagues of mine, we’re currently focusing on developing data capture & analytics products for open cast mining (NxGN).

Outside of work I tend to be fairly hands-on and prefer to do things myself (within limits), I play a bit of cricket and squash, love cars and enjoy a good whiskey. There isn’t much I’m not willing to explore and live to learn new things.
