About Me

I have been a technical lecturer for over 9 years and have had hundreds of corporate students from companies such as Mr Price, Derivco, Smart Exchange, Transnet, Dimension Data, Jonsson and Gijima pass through and benefit from my classes, with all of them leaving with a smile on their faces.

I specialize in Microsoft Server Applications (Sharepoint, Exchange and System Center), Server Operating Systems (Server 2008, Server 2012), cloud based solutions and Cisco Communications. I have also lectured a number of ITIL, COBIT and Linux courses. While I prefer teaching technical, I am interested in other opportunities.
