What I'm Doing Now
I'm currently in Chiang Mai, Thailand catching up with friends, meeting new interesting people, swimming laps, enjoying delicious Thai food and enjoying the beauty of the tropical vegetation.
How I Chose My Own Adventure
I was born and raised in Cape Town, South Africa. My core heritage is South African, German, Irish and a bit of British. I can speak English, German, Afrikaans and am currently learning French.
From a young age, I dreamt of becoming a professional footballer (i.e. soccer). In high school and university, I spent most of my time playing, writing, recording and performing as part of my own punk rock bands - Skwirmish and Spratch. I play guitar, sing and have recently learnt how to play the drums.
During my early teenage years, I got access to the Internet and have never stopped learning and exploring. I developed a passion for web development, design, online marketing, tech, and entrepreneurship.
I spent 4 years studying business and marketing at the University of Cape Town (UCT), after which I opted against the 9 to 5 corporate route and instead launched my own digital agency, Posmay Media, in 2008. I've always valued freedom and experiences over status and possessions.
I've worked on various projects - mostly client work and numerous of my own passion projects including Freemadic & SkimZA. I love travelling, photography, video production, surfing, skimboarding, the ocean, trains, nature, animals, vegetarian food, movies, and music.
