“The key to unlocking complexity, is simplicity itself” This is the lesson that I have learned time and time again, not just in business, but life as well. Hence my perspective, in that we can complicate life or take a pragmatic approach. I grew up in a single parent household, with my father and younger sister, uncommon in my community whereby most single parent would be one’s mother, but this has shaped my thinking…not everything is what it seems.
Firmly believe that personal and moral growth is a direct consequence of uplifting communities and protecting the vulnerable. Recently, I was the MD of a rural firefighting programme and still remains one of my passions in terms of assisting underserviced communities.
I’ve worked in television, mainly satellite broadcasting, the South African revenue service, back into broadcasting, then firefighting and now green economy initiatives including a component of green building construction and manufacturing.
Personally, an avid motorcycle enthusiast as well as a proponent of animal welfare. As you will notice from my pictures, motorcycles and pets. Right now, we have 10 pets, 4 dogs and 6 cats. All are adopted and some rescued, save for the German Shepherd.
From Johannesburg, where I have spent most of my adult life and come from a very modest background which has provided me with a different perspective on how the world actually works, compared to how we would hope it would work.
Through my professional career, I have been fortunate to have the opportunity to work and engage with predominantly rural communities and if anything, realise that as a society, we have far more to achieve than what many of us are aware of. Firmly believe that personal and moral growth is a direct consequence of uplifting communities and protecting the vulnerable.
