As a Director, COO and CTO of InfoMine, I oversee worldwide operations and technology from InfoMine's head office in Vancouver, Canada. I have worked with InfoMine since 2001 and have served on the board of InfoMine since 2004.
My business experience and training with InfoMine have provided a good understanding of the global resource industry, investment and finance. I oversee much of the product and service development for the mining industry, and play a strategic role in the marketing and sales to mining companies and suppliers worldwide. I have a natural strength in operations and logi …[+] stics, and have a keen desire to innovate and improve.
My engineering background provides the solid foundation for strategic and iterative business development. I have been involved with website and ecommerce architecture, development and business since 1995.
I am also a co-author of the 360° Mining Course on EduMine - a one of a kind online mining course that will teach you things in mining that you won't find in other courses. Talk the talk and walk the walk of mining. Visit www.ThreeSixtyMining.com
Born and mostly raised in South Africa, I transferred to Simon Fraser University (Vancouver, Canada) in 1995 to complete my Bachelors in Engineering. I grew up with software, programming and the Internet, and eventually graduated in 2001 with an engineering degree after working with several technology oriented companies in Vancouver, Canada, including Lynx GeoSystems (mine modeling), Dynapro (manufacturing automation), Motorola (cellular communications), Starvision (medical imaging) and Tantalus (ecommerce). I completed my thesis with distinction in robotics while working for Siemens in Munich, Germany in 1999. [-]
