All consumingly passionate is how I have been described from my earliest working career. I would spend hours, days and weeks devouring books on photography which was the springboard for a weekend warrior position in the photographic retail store, Kameraz, located in Johannesburg, South Africa.
Looking back on my career now in 2015, I have been fortunate to branch into out fields of interest, like technology, working currently as the Product and Marketing Manager for the Mobile Phone division of Samsung Electronics Sub-Saharan Africa Regional HQ.
Prior to this, I worked as the Digital Imaging Division Head in Sony South Africa where a few years earlier I had been contracted in as the Product Specialist for the recently launched Alpha camera range.
In the past decade I have also had the opportunity of co-founding two companies and a photography magazine (PhotoComment). Some of these chapters ended well - for example selling one of the companies - and others sadly fell victim to the economic factors of the time.
These days as I travel to various countries across Africa, I am inspired by the creativity and innovation that exists within so many of the continents diverse population.
My desire is to further work within the rapidly advancing business and technology landscape of the continent and perhaps in some way, make a difference in some small way.
When I am not working and travelling, my time is spent with my family who today, are my reason for being. A husband and father to two boys keeps one on your toes and offers immeasurable rewards.
