South African | Venture Capital | Education Equity
In a few words
Born and raised in South Africa, I am a venture capitalist at 4Di Capital and an equal education activist. Upon graduating high school, I attended the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), where I graduated with a degree in Political Science.
Outside of venture capital, I have a distinct passion for education equity, having founded a non-profit organization: the Litoro Foundation, which provides full scholarships to talented, yet underprivileged young scholars to attend excellent schools.
For fun, I like to do anything outdoors, ranging from hiking to tennis, while I also enjoy a good book – with my favorite topics including philosophy, psychology, startups, and of course education. Moreover, I recently started a blog to chronicle some of my thoughts on such topics.
Field notes in the realms of education, startups, venture capital, and beyond.
