Let me preface by saying that running out of business cards is a wonderful problem to be faced with.
When I first moved over to the UK, I decided that I’d like to go to as many networking events as possible. I had become a regular of Joburg-based 27Dinner and wanted to find something just as magical. I started looking for cool things and in the process discovered all of the glittering hackathons that London has to offer. more
Over the last few months, it would appear that I’ve become known for working on at least a thousand projects at any given time. New ideas fill up my mind and run away with my imagination, leaving me a little bleary eyed but always hacking something together.

1. Drinking More Water
No more desk-dehydration. I’m taking a jug to work and I plan to infuse some water with all sorts of things like strawberries and lemons – what fun. We have a running joke to call these infusions ‘Douche Drinks’. I stand by that and look forward to my deliciously douchy drinks. more
Could we all just take a second…
