I live near Port Shepstone, South of Durban, South Africa, with my partner and three dogs. Our home overlooks the nearby beach of the Indian Ocean.
I tend to do all the cooking for evening meals though Saturday is my night-off and my partner cooks us home-made pizzas.
I enjoy diving and have enjoyed cage-diving with both Ragged-Tooth and Tiger Sharks. We also go hiking into the nearby hills, the longest so far being 38 Km to the top of the Tugela Falls where you look down onto the clouds below.

My Typical Day: My day usually consists of lots of meetings...starting at 08:00 each workday. I'm currently working from home so my internet connection is my lifeline. I have some 20+ meetings each week, with each taking an hour or so. I have to carefully analyse work schedules and make sure everyone works safely, that is really important.
