About Ronald

I’m a thinker, sort of entrepreneur, full stack web developer and compulsive coffee drinker.

I like coffee. A lot. 

I grew up in Durban, South Africa.

I wasn’t a big fan of my 12 years of school. I thought it was boring, stupid and pointless for most part.
But then I found myself on a one way flight to Seoul, South Korea where I spent the 5 best years ever.
I’m back in SA for now catching up on some well overdue surf,

Me riding the sponge! 

but also on a quest to get back to Asia and start round 2 of my journey there.

UPDATE: I spent 3 awesome months coworking at cafe’s in Thailand. Made good friends, had great coffee and my productivity levels sky rocketed.

That’s totally my vibe. I just love Asia. Best food on the planet.

I’m obsessed with anything Noodle related.

Despite studying International Studies and Business Administration in Korea, I’ve always been passionately inclined to all-things-tech and doing stuff using a computer since I was a little kid.

Still to this day when someone in town and even family got computer issues, they tend to contact me, before Googling. Sometimes I don’t even know them!
However most days, if I can’t sort it out remotely, I just send them to one of the local computer repair stores.

I now have found my way into the tech industry, through doing web development and tech consultation gigs for both Individuals and Startups.

In my free time I enjoy building my own projects / ‘mini startups’ with my fellow passionate makers over at wip.chat. All my projects are being built openly in public.

My programming language of choice is Python.

I speak English & Afrikaans, understand Dutch by default and I know a fair bit of Korean and can throw random Japanese words. I’m generally quite bad at human languages.

I would love to hear from you. Whether you’re a stranger, an old friend or if you’re interested in getting me to help you build your new product.
