I run 24.com, South Africa’s largest online publishing business.
Off the back of News24.com, our news portal, we reach millions of consumers across Africa on multiple devices and in many different languages.
I have been working in the digital space for more than ten years - which in main stream media terms is like thirty lifetimes. Over the past decade I have been part of many of the digital organisations in South Africa and have had the fortune to work with some of the coolest people in digital media in Africa.
I am a classic university drop-out with a degree from the school of hard knocks with a major in Learning Through Doing and Sometimes Failing. I am fond of economics, single malt and passionate arguments - usually after drinking too much of the second and not thinking enough on the first.
