I was born in Mamelodi, east of Pretoria on 21 April 1973. I was educated at St Johns College in Johannesburg and later went to the University of Pretoria to study to be a teacher. I was not a good student because I never completed my degree... I was bored.
I decided to go into business taking advantage of the opportunities presented by BEE. I got involved in the office furniture industry and soon became a sales manager in one of the larger manufacturing companies. Later I got appointed as Director in a national records management company and served on the board for 7 years.I learned a lot about people during this period.
I decided to get out of the corporate rat-race in 2009 because I did not like the person I was becoming in the BEE scene it was pretentious and unsustainable.
I started a retail wholesale business in Mamelodi in early 2010 and got involved in my fathers business (property development and provision of low income housing).
I also teach and facilitate entry-level management courses for various tertiary educational institutions. Iím a motivational speaker and an avid reader. Iím very interested in esoteric wisdoms and spiritual development.
I love South Africa and all its people with a passion. Iím constantly looking for ways to make the diverse peoples of our country find their common humanity, given our complicated past and interesting present.
