I was born and raised in Johannesburg, South Africa.
After completing High School, I moved from Johannesburg to Cape Town where I attended the University of Cape Town. At UCT I studied a Bsc(Eng) in Mechatronics. I was on the Dean's merit list for my first three years and graduated my fourth year with honours in distinction.
After graduating from UCT, I worked at Explore Data Science in Woodstock, Cape Town. As a part of the Explore team I created content to teach students at the data science academy various digital skills. These digital skills included python, machine learning and Java. My other main responsibility was to create a web-app to process written documentation submitted by students.
I then started a M.S. in robotics at Northwestern University, Chicago. As part of the masters I learnt various skills related to robotics including ROS. I am also involved in various projects as part of courses and that I have pursued on my own time. These projects can be found in my portfolio above.
