About Me

Hi there

And now! At Last! Another about me page completely different from some of the other about me pages which aren’t quite the same as this one is.

I am a software developer currently working for Readify. I speak German, English and pretend-Afrikaans and pretend-French. Pretend-language is where you do the occasional smile-nod and laugh at others jokes at inappropriate times.

I grew up in a country called Namibia. Maybe you know where that is? Big country, only 2 million people, desert, all types of different animals… beautiful!

My first computer was a Commodore 64. Even back then I had to tinker with the machine and managed to break a few software programs in the process. My favourite game Airwolf did not work anymore in my process of discovering how this machine worked.

My love for programming saw me teaching for a while and working together with a few amazing people across a whole range of industries. This is one of the most enjoyable aspects of being a software developer.

Make sure to say hi on twitter or by e-mail. I always love to meet new people. If I don’t respond to e-mails or calls immediately, it’s likely that I am hiking, camping or playing lion-lion with my two young boys.
