About Me

My name is Shaun Vermaak and I have always been fascinated with technology and how we use it to enhance our lives and business.

Technology has always been my passion and by nature, it is ever changing, forcing me to constantly reinvent myself.

Having been fortunate to be able to work in all kinds of industries, I believe it is this experience that enables me to look at problems differently.

No matter in which position or on what project I work, I find my development background vital and always believe easier ways exist to accomplish a task. We have failed fundamentally if we do anything in life the same, the second time.
