After graduating from the University of Cape Town with a Masters in Electrical Engineering Simon spent several years working on mHealth projects in and around South Africa. He joined Dimagi after a short period in the online advertising industry where he worked on large scale SAO systems.
Simon has a passion for developing efficient systems that people enjoy using. He greatly prefers working on open systems and believes that building good software starts with building good relationships.
Outside of work Simon loves the outdoors, particularly the African bush where he spent many family holidays growing up. Simon spends his time off enjoying the company of his wife and friends in and around the beautiful city of Cape Town. He’s often out walking his dog and is also quite involved in his local church.
