"I love working with clients and figuring out ways to make their day to day operations more efficient. When a client calls me with a difficult problem, it feels good to be able to resolve their issue. I enjoy football and I am a die-hard Mamelodi Sundowns and Chelsea supporter."

Helping out clients eliminate their technology frustrations and make their lives easier and more productive is the best part of my job.
