Studied law, languages. Worked at the BBC. Then Hollard Insurance. Then after a short period of doing my own thing, joined a start up company Etana Insurance - a business insurer doing things diffrently not for difference sake but to make a real difference to team mates and clients. Etana was sold in December 2013 and I now focus full-time on carelnolte.com - a business that invests in people and businesses who believe in fun and that 2 + 2 = (at least) 22 and not 4 :) I live in South Africa and am a passionate African. I believe anything is possible and that my friends and family are what make this world worthwhile. I love life and laugh a lot at the hand I am dealt. Love living in Johannesburg. Burning Man is something I love attending. Being chairman of St Stithians College is very important to me an a responsibility I take very seriously, and enjoy tremendously. I love running, reading, challenging myself and remembering that unless we are dead, anything is possible!

It's like Burningman, sort of, so I wanted to check it out! And my best friend has been coming for years. And I love learning and being inspired by diversity. It helps me make connections and see possibilities to make the world a better place.
