"Where are you from?" Common question, but I'm never sure how to answer it. I was born in South Africa and I've lived in 11 cities in Canada, India and the US. Speaking of bouncing around, I love to travel (over 25 countries and counting) and experience other cultures (especially the food).

Moving around has become second nature, but I'm ready to plant some roots - literally. I recently moved to Austin and I'm loving it! As an avid gardener (yes, I've been called an old man before), I love the Texas heat and all the things I can grow down here. I currently have several raised vegetable beds and numerous fruit trees including peaches, plums, persimmons, figs, pomegranates, and olives.

Beyond gardening, I spend my time with my wife Dipti (a.k.a. wife-a-licious) and two little ones. Weekends are usually spent hiking in the mornings (lots to choose from in ATX), Home Depot kids workshops, or short weekend road trips exploring. I also enjoy the occasional DIY project (most recently renovated the bathroom and planning my next project).
