I was born in Jozi, South Africa, and moved to Durban in 1993 after taking up a position at a large Youth Development NGO. I jointly headed up the International Youth Development Centre, a project that specialized in recruiting university students from countries outside of South Africa and placing them in community development projects in and around Durban. Once I stepped out of the non-profit NGO world, I toured a variety of industries and companies.
People tell me they enjoy my creative thinking and the chunk of enthusiasm that follows me around.
I've been fortunate in that my creativity has found it’s way into many organisations and projects. One currently ‘on the boil’ (and we're excited about it) is a significant contribution to one day cricket in the form of ‘DotBall’. It was recently tested in the IPL series played in South Africa, as well as two T20 internationals between South Africa and Australia. Watch Nov 2009 for the next installation : )
Internationally I've had the opportunity to work with companies and organisations in many countries, including: England, Japan, Singapore, USA (Hawaii), Southern Africa, and I've engaged with delegates from many countries throughout Africa.
In a nutshell, that's me!
