Born in Vosloorus, he is a Self Taught Developer, Hackathonista, AWS Certified Solutions Architect as well as the Managing Director for a StartUp called ArtScience. Facing unemployment and the harsh reality of living in the village, he started coding from pdf books that he would download from the internet.
Currently working on a VR project for the Music Industry with his Company ArtScience which is a 100% Black owned Company. His dream one day is to create and lead uniquely African Space Exploration Company.
In just over a year, have moved from being unemployed to being the Managing Director of a Technological StartUp and because of that he believe he is the symbol of what IT, Hackathons and Code can do to transform our communities.
