About me

My goal is to bridge the gap between technology and marketing. My unique experience in design, development and technology puts me in a position to solve problems creatively. I’ve used this thinking to create start-ups, build my own business and now use it to drive the strategic direction of web and front-end at Rand Merchant Bank. I am always on the look out for new challenges and this is primarily driven by my need to know more. I also enjoy sharing this knowledge with my team and I often convey my thinking through my writing and public speaking. Purpose is important to me and I hope to use some of my personal purpose to drive change in your organisation.
