Cape Town, South Africa


I have spent the last 20 years learning to be a better tester (but I’m not done yet). I gathered my experience working in several industries as a team member, a team leader, a coach and a mentor – doing all that I can to inspire a love for quality. As a member of the Cape Town Testing planning team, I assist in arranging quarterly conference-style meetups with a focus on software quality and making quality friends.

I recently joined Takealot, South Africa’s leading e-tailer, as an engineering team lead.
