After completing his B.Com Finance degree at the University of Johannesburg, he joined Thebe Stock broking as an Equity derivatives trader. After spending a year on the derivatives desk he was offered the opportunity to join the institutional trading desk on the equity dealing side in addition to his role as a derivatives trader. That afforded him the opportunity to be absorbed into other roles within the company, which also include fixed income dealing for all Thebe institutional clients.

His passion for financial markets is obvious as his skills and experience extend from Derivatives trading to Equities and fixed income dealing.
