Professional Summary

Managing the operations of two leading AWS Advanced Partners has afforded me the opportunity to hone a broad array of skill, and to drive significant strategic and management improvements in the rapidly evolving fields of cloud computing and data management, through the cost-effective, secure, reliable, compliant, efficient and prioritized use of technology for the teams who engage with and critically rely upon it.

With extensive exposure to, and experience with, a host of Agile-based clients (Kanban and SCRUM) from SME to enterprise-level, including Shoprite Holdings, Old Mutual, Just SA, Rawson Properties, HomeChoice and Capitec Bank, I have proven my ability to adapt and excel in a multitude of challenging technical and business roles, from conception to maturity. This has enabled me to build upon my generalist experience and skill set, allowing me to contribute meaningfully from all angles.

I am currently based in Cape Town, South Africa, single and am available for international relocation.
