I'm a Cape Town based internet entrepreneur. I cofounded TravelGround.com with some awesome friends in 2008 and we're now a 40+ person team.
Beyond business and technology my interests include reading pretty widely, architecture, history, design, supporting WP rugby and photography!
I also really enjoy travelling and hope to eventually be able to work from the road while visiting interesting places. A list of some of the places I've been to.
I play a little golf & squash. I've been watching rugby at Newlands since before I can remember and will support Province to the very end!
I'm mainly interested in BMWs, Italian GT's and some racing cars. A list of some favourites.
I enjoy photography and have an old school film SLR and a lomo. Some of my photos.
I'm a proud cofounder of the following ventures:
» travelground - online accommodation bookings
» lekkeslaap - an afrikaans version of the above
I've now started a new SaaS company:
» hirecontrast - awesome applicant screening
ME IN SF!
