cartoon me

Born in South Africa, I am inspired by open source and its contributors to bring value and precious resources to all, including those of limited means.

With the power to alter the lives of even the most underprivileged individuals, open-source is paving the way for drastic change and redistribution of wealth.

Herein lies my love for continuous learning of open-source technology and developing life changing products and sites for the world.
