My name is: Philip Marais
I’m from a country called: South Africa
I work at: nFold
And my job title is: CTO
My secret side projects include: Semi social-platform for logging training sessions for myself and my family. Chrome apps that automate the monotonous parts browsing the web for business development.
I am pretty good at: Django, Python, Research Science (Biochemistry, Physiology)
Outside the office, I’m passionate about: Metal Music, my guitars, my running shoes and South African politics and sports.
I’m involved with Rockstart because: The network gives me access to mentors that ask uncomfortable and difficult questions about process
More about me: I am both intrigued and scared by other humans. I get obsessed about random topics from time to time. Working in a startup is a surefire replacement for any and all professional dissatisfaction/curiosity. Caveat, it is mostly replaced with anxiety and “what the f*** have I done?” moments, but every now and then you get a moment of unadulterated magic that is totally addictive!
