About me

After working abroad for 10 years as an IT Practitioner, my return to SA saw me take up various Senior ICT roles over the next decade, including: part-time lecturer at UCT's Graduate School of Business (GSB), Snr IT Leader, Chief Information Officer, at one of the local Universities and a board member across various associations.


I have over 20 years experience in IT and information security spanning all aspects including governance, architecture, application security; business continuity and disaster recovery (IT service continuity) planning.

My Goals

The challenges I faced led
to realising my purpose of growing new leaders in an accelerating Digital Landscape. Wanting to formally contribute to this body of knowledge, I also registered for my Doctorate, with the focus being on Developing a eLeadership Model for Digital Transformation Initiatives.
