A Bit About Me
My name is Wessel Swanepoel. I'm a Lifelong Learner, Entrepreneur, Mentor, Software Developer and Cyber Security Consultant with a passion for all things tech - except for printers. I really hate printers...
As a security consultant, I spend my days helping clients protect their vulnerables and valuables from cyber baddies and preparing for disaster. I like to pretend I'm a tech superhero, fighting against the evil forces of slow internet, outdated software and administrator accounts secured with "Password.123!". I don my cape (aka my favorite hoodie) and wield my trusty keyboard like a weapon, ready to conquer any tech-related challenge that comes my way.
As a software developer, I spend my nights hunched over my computer building software aimed at revolutionizing an industry. It's hard work that requires a steady hand, determination, the occasional cat motivational video and copious amounts of caffein - but I'm willing to do whatever it takes to get the job done!
I'm always on the lookout for new business ventures, but let me be honest, my ideas are sometimes a little out there. I once tried to pitch a tech startup that would deliver tacos via drone, but apparently, there were some "logistical concerns." Go figure... Despite my occasional harebrained ideas, I'm a firm believer that you never know what will stick until you try it. That's why I'm always open to exploring new business ventures, even if they seem a little unconventional. Of course, not every idea is a winner. But hey, at least I'll have a good story to tell at the next networking event.
So if you're looking for a business-minded tech enthusiast who's not afraid to take risks, you've found your match. Just don't be surprised if I show up to the meeting with a taco in hand and a wild idea in mind
