Born and spent most of my life in South Africa. Electrical/electronics engineer turned computer networker. Married to a veterinarian, with 4 children. Migrated to Canada in 2004. Self-employed as a tame network geek.
Used to run marathons and ultras, starting with Comrades in South Africa. The knowledge that I could keep going mile after mile long after I just wanted to sit down and give up helped me get through the first few months, and helps me keep going now.
