Why I'm a JPAL

I am very interested in new technologies and how they bring themselves to the market. Having worked in Biosense Webster for many years and having been exposed to our own R&D, and start-ups that have entered the market, I have an academic interest in how products can enter specific markets.


My 16 years in medical devices (all J&J) combined with diverse leadership and geographical experiences (South Africa, Belgium, Central Eastern Europe, Switzerland) has made me a leader who likes challenges, and to be taken out of my comfort zone. I thrive when I am given a team to lead and I do so with energy and drive.


"Do or no do. There is no try."

Fun fact:

In 2017 I ran the Comrades Marathon (87km) with my father of 69 years.
