WHO I AM

I am ad­ven­tur­ous and cre­ative, a cool, calm, col­lected thinker who en­joys a chal­lenge.

WHAT I DO

I am a young busi­ness­man with a mo­bile app brand called Pro­moza. Pro­moza is a plat­form that turns hours of win­dow shop­ping into min­utes of screen brows­ing for free.

JOUR­NEY SO FAR

I was born in Or­lando, Soweto, moved to the sub­urbs at the age of six to at­tend Forest Hill Pri­mary School. My teen years were spent at Sir John Adam­son High School. I grad­u­ated from Midrand Grad­u­ate In­sti­tute. I’ve strug­gled and failed in try­ing to start mul­ti­ple busi­nesses. I face chal­lenges in my own per­sonal life and I’ve had to make sac­ri­fices with my fi­nances and per­sonal life to achieve what I have to­day. The great­est suc­cess to date is Pro­moza!

FU­TURE PLANS

Busi­nesses in var­i­ous sec­tors.

WHAT DRIVES ME

My sur­round­ings and the achieve­ments of oth­ers. I don’t spend time read­ing books. In­stead I spend a lot of time analysing my sur­round­ings and dig­ging deep into my thoughts and won­der­ing how things are made, how cer­tain busi­nesses achieve great things or how cer­tain peo­ple make it big in life and draw I in­spi­ra­tion from that.

WHAT I DRIVE

An Audi RS3 Sport­back. I would like to drive an Audi RS6.

ON MY AU­DIO SYS­TEM

A lot of old-school hip hop, R&B and house mu­sic.

SA ROADS WOULD BE BET­TER

IF We had more lanes, less traf­fic, less pot­holes and less speed­ing tick­ets.
