I studied Business Science at the University of Cape Town. During this time I took a leave of absence and spent two years living in Ghana doing volunteer work. After returning I graduated and then went on to work as a retail scan data analyst servicing FMCG manufactures.

After graduating from UCT with a Business Science degree, I lectured in 2012, then worked on UCT’s Across Africa initiative in 2013. I am currently working on my masters focusing on consumer behaviour in the bottom of the pyramid as well as working on a project with GetSmarter and Silulo. I also help out at Tedx’s in Cape Town.

I will focus on innovation, strategy, decision-making, Africa and all stages of business.
