Service Description

I can offer a more than average experience in IT. I started as a programmer, became project leader and project manager and finally developed all-inclusive IT solutions to small, medium and large companies and government institutions.

Since I moved to South Africa in 1997, I started my one-man consultancy firm. Being a guest house owner myself, I have set up several dozens of guest house IT systems in my touristy town. I now fully concentrate on cloud based backup and synchronization solutions and internet security.
