I am married to am an amazing partner Barbara. We live in Woodstock, Cape Town with our 3 cats. My interests in life in no particular or are psychedelic trance, technology, business and endurance sports. Travelling is a passion of mine because it expands my perspective on life on earth. When I travel, my goal is to combine my interests, so 2 to 3 times a year I head off to places around the world to cycle my bike or attend trance festivals or attend open source conferences.

My interests in life introduce me to communities, I call these communities my tribes. In sport I am apart of the trail running and mountain biking tribes, these are mostly local, but I find it easy to integrate into sporting tribes anywhere in the world. Sport has been a core aspect in my life since I was 14 and I hope to be competing in events until well into my 70s.

I have been travelling to trance festivals around the world for the past 14 years, attending my first festival outside of South Africa in 2001 in Zambia. The people that I met at that first international party I have seen around the world in Thailand, Brazil, California and Europe. This trance tribe is very much a global tribe.

The last tribe I am apart of is possibly one of the most important. Through open source software I was introduced to WordPress, I have connected with people all over the world and through travelling to conferences in other countries I have met the people who I follow online. WordPress is the software that my business LightSpeed uses to build everything we do. This community inspires me the most and in 2015 will aid me in building the products that will enable my future travels and sporting adventures.
