What's My Mission?

To leverage data to make concise and precise design and development decisions, in order to release timely, efficiently and resourceful products

I am currently leading the Digital department at a fast growing ad agency in Johannesburg, South Africa. My passion started at the age of 18 when I had an idea for a website, with no one to assist, I started teaching myself basic HTML. Over the years while working for some of the best ad agencies focusing in Market Research, Brand Strategy, Data Analysis and Digital Marketing, I finally made the move to focus on building digital products and continue to learn and grow in the field while learning form others as well. My career experience has refined my attention to detail literally and attention to the entire customer experience which is why its never about a beautifully crafted website or mobile app but it's about delivering an individual brand's value proposition.
