Finished at Parktown with little ambition and less interest in 1981. Spent two years, as we all did, in the Infantry between Potchefstroom and up north. Developed an interest for computers and coding, (PBHS thought i was too dumb for the things in 80/81). Finished a Diploma in those days covering Accounts, Economics, "Data Processing" as it was known then:-).. After a few jobs in Re-Insurance, Logistics, Retail - Edgars doing various tech. and Operations jobs, landed up in Nedcor in Sandton. ... Having spent a year on sabbatical in the UK shortly after getting married in 1990 and vowing never ever to put a foot back in England, we immigrated to Nottinghamshire, UK to join Ross Perot new start-up, Perot Systems (EDS-2) in its 2nd year of operation. Spent the next 12 years helping to grow the business, spending half my life in aeroplanes and became a bit of a workaholic. Great fun growing the company in Asia and Europe until we sold the company to Dell. Spent a few years with them in a transition type phase, took 5 months out to play golf and then joined Maersk where i am today, travel less, don't work as hard and continue to have fun albeit single now for the last couple years. Like all of us getting older but still have the ability to act like a 18 year old.
