Cape Town’s Burning!

The Mother City has had a rough week. Two huge fires, fanned by gale-force winds, have wrecked havoc to the slopes surrounding Cape Town’s city bowl.


Last night, a fire swept through one of my favourite walking / trail-running / MTB’ing spots, Deer Park. The folk who volunteer to fight the fires all night are real life heroes!

An Attempt at Blogging

I’ve never been good at keeping a journal or blogging; but, now that I work in the Data team at, I thought I’d give it a whirl.

A little bit about me: I live in Cape Town and wrangle data at Automattic (of, WooCommerce, JetPack etc. fame). A husband to 1 and father of 2. Love spending time outdoors, travelling, singing and hanging out with family and friends!

Not really sure what I’m going to be writing about. Perhaps a bit of code, a few pics, some data science and book/tech/film/music/tv/travel reviews.
