Originally from Cape Town South Africa and living in Dubai for last 4 years - Masters in Energy and Development Studies - Love Solar Energy and future of renewables Will be going to California to meet with 2 companies I admire SolarCity and Tesla.

5 Things I cant live without:

1) The task of problem solving how of making renewable energy possible for residential households ( solar and electric vehicles)
2) Learning about how the world and life actually works ( thanks youtube, IFLS, cafe scientifique and coursera) -
3) Meeting inspiring passionate people that wake up and want to DO rather than TALK about doing.
4) Thinking
5) Creativity and beauty - Making new things possible, originality, brainstorming, having fun with problem solving, growing as a person, connecting with people,
