interests

When i'm not developing, I'm either in a silent disco at home or watching football... most likely watching football. In the off season I try to find new anime to watch or a series on netflix that's thought provoking... However watching Vikings conquer other lands is entertaining too!

When Cape Town's wind behaves, I will venture out beyond my driveway to a mountain that needs hiking, a beach that needs swimming or a travelled area that needs sightseeing
