I consider myself a pragmatic dreamer that strives to keep doing incredible things with inspiring people. I have a proven track record spanning two decades of delivering award-winning projects for leading international, and local brands, including Toyota, Samsung, MSN & Microsoft.
I am business-savvy, yet fluent in geek and creative, and love building and mentoring talented teams. My sleeves are permanently rolled up, and I have always been passionate about software craftsmanship and full-stack architecture.
I have been fortunate to judge leading industry awards and was the founder and organizer of the Code Craftsmanship Meetups, a 320 member meetup of software craftsman focussing on progressive technology and best practices.
I am a certified Yachtmaster with a deep love for the ocean. I have recently sailed from South Africa across the South Atlantic Ocean to the Caribbean with my family on Evenflow, our 40' Sailing Catamaran. I am now living in the beautiful state of Hawaii.
