I’m a Bitcoin enthusiast, forex trader and blogger, writing about currency trading and monetary systems, the most interesting of which is Bitcoin and especially the Blockchain technology underlying it.

I was born in Vrededorp,  Johannesburg, on the 19th of October 1971. I studied BSc Electrical Engineering at UCT and WITS university and after graduating started working for a bit in industry, I have always been passionate about social entrepreneurship, and am documenting my adventures with affiliate marketing and Forex Trading to achieve these ends. My goal is to reach at least a million young South African youth and help them become successful affiliate marketers.

I have worked in various capacities as diverse as corporate management consulting, online internet businesses, social entrepreneurial ventures, shamanic healing and investigating the purpose of humanity’s consciousness, . My interest in the world around me, and my passion for love and life, has made me a versatile person. I can easily chat to any business partner about our next start-up, and then switch to a healing session with a client, and play the role of spiritual life guide, support my family, friends, or comfort a vulnerable child (my favourite thing to do, I value the appreciation I receive from those so pure.)

My career started as a technical sales engineer at Pace Electronic Components, after which I moved to Rapid Blue Interactive, a Gauteng web development and multimedia company. While there, I worked on solutions for clients and coming up with new ideas to market companies. After a spiritual awakening, I started studying the science and art of healing, and undertook a soul searching and satisfying exploration into the depths of my being.

The BitCoin opportunity is very exciting though, as it ushers in the age of the “Internet of Value” and I’m looking forward to seeing a whole host of new opportunities come from this new economy.
