What’s your story?
After completing a BSc in Mechanical Engineering at Yale, I spent 2 years working at SAC Capital on Wall Street. I found his passion lay in technology and education and moved back to South Africa where I then founded iX. I’m most satisfied when seeing the life-changing effect iX has on its students.
