I studied Computer Systems Engineering directly after finishing school, currently working on medical systems in South Africa.
 
I'm doing my very best to age as slowly as possible and I firmly believe that I have the rest of my life to be old.
 
December '06 I jumped from the highest commercial bungy in the world (216 meters), never knew something so scary could be so addictive.
 
Update - January '10 I became a married man and life is finally starting to take shape! I am now also a qualified open water scuba diver. And I have yet to visit both of the American continents as well as Antarctica to say I've seen all seven.
 
2011 - I married the greatest girl out there! For our anniversary my wife surprised me by making a booking for us to go sky-diving! It was absolutely exhilarating! Not nearly as nerve wrecking as bungy-jumping, but equally (if not more) enjoyable!
 
2012 - We arranged our own tour of Europe. It was an unforgettable trip. Most memorable would probably be the news we got (with the aid of a local pharmacist) during our stay in Manarola, Italy.
- This is also the year I officially started iOS development.
 
2013 - The news we got in Italy has now come "full term" and I've become a proud Father of the most perfect little baby girl!
 
2013 - I was fortunate enough the be handed a project that required me to learn native iOS development, and after about 4-5 months (part-time) of of self-taught programming I released my very first iPad app to the Apple App Store (on my first submission attempt). To me, learning Objective-C & Cocoa touch was like dancing two-step with a very fat lady - you thought you could dance, but the word cumbersome suddenly took on a whole new meaning - Eventually the learning curve leveled out and I started to enjoy really enjoy it! (Though I still think she's fat)
