Academic Biography

I was born on 9 September 1963 in a small town, Vereeniging, South Africa but my family moved to Durban when I was about 9 years old. I completed my primary schooling at Durban Preparatory High School (DPHS) and my high schooling at Durban High School (DHS). I then studied at the University of Natal, Durban where I majored in Chemistry and Mathematics. In also studied Physics for two years. I then went on to study for a Higher Diploma in Education. At the begining of 2008 I registered for a BSc Honours in Science Education at the University of the Witwatersrand,(Wits).
