Reflecting on the Journey
I am currently on a sabbatical, reading and writing, while trying to learn Mandarin. It is a time of reflection and re-evaluation for me. I am the Founder of Fundamo (the leading supplier of mobile money platforms), now acquired by Visa. I am often seen as the father of mobile payments, having launched the first mobile payment solution in 2000. I have been voted as one of the hundred most influential people in telecommunication three years in a row and have won many awards and accolades for my work in mobile commerce.
In addition to having twenty plus years of systems management experience, I hold a number of degrees in Information Systems; is a member of the CSSA (Computer Society of S.A.(www.cssa.org.za)) and an ex-board member of SAICSIT (S.A. Institute of Computer Scientists and Information Technologists). I am one of the founding members of CITI (the Cape IT Initiative (www.citi.org.za)) and is a member of a number of international workgroups on the application of technology in business. I am passionate about technology and believes that mobile phones (and future pervasive devices) will change the way that people interact in more ways than just communication. I am a re-born Christian with a close relationship with my God. He taught me to live in harmony with all people. I have a special relationship with my wife whom have been my partner for thirty years. I am passionate about wine, food and travel.
Why fade away when you can burn out?
