I have a degree in Electronic Engineering with Computer Science from Stellenbosch University.
I have taken several software products from concept to implementation.
I design gorgeous user interfaces that are intuitive and simple to use.

I can communicate well in the written and spoken word, with a good feel for memorable branding.
