I'm an entrepreneurial journalist with two decades of writing about tech under my belt. At present, I'm the founder of htxt.africa and in a past life I've covered everything from Silicon Valley to videogames to tech in development. Mild mannered journalist by day, at night I also sometimes help to co-ordinate the Joburg chapter of Hacks/Hackers.
