Jean-Pierre was born the same year Microsoft Word was released (1983), and became part of an extremely large and divided family. He was unfortunately born with a rare eye condition called Duane’s Eye Syndrome which as a child resulted in some self-confidence issues, and he preferred spending time by himself dismantling and rebuilding gadgets, electric cars and PCs.
Jean-Pierre grew up in a humble suburb in Cape Town called Southfield. All of his schooling was Catholic. During his early teen years the family home burnt down and he spent his remaining childhood living with extended family.
In high school, Jean-Pierre started several small projects to generate an income and also helped teach lessons for a company called Future Kids, a business that provided computer literacy for learners and parents.
Jean-Pierre was never a traditional or fully engaged student (sometimes assumed to be a troubled teen) and worked more outside of school than in classrooms. After matriculating he started his own company and by the age of nineteen had invoiced his first million. Around the same time, he launched an NPO and has maintained several community projects over the years.
Jean-Pierre has an eccentric character and a uniquely brilliant brand of care and attention for people and business. He is adapt at seeing a far bigger picture and playing the game three steps ahead, all the while mitigating risks and engaging with opportunity.
In his early twenties he met a tradesman from UK who introduced him to internet marketing and a business model selling tours to Botswana. Jean-Pierre adapted these lessons and used this model to launch several small e-businesses, these enabled him to travel around the World which exposed him to many market sectors that helped develop his distinctive style of business dexterity. He never desired to run a gargantuan corporate and ‘business’ was always meant to be a ‘tool’ to enable more important life objectives.
Life progressed, he fell deeply in love, got married, endured a mother in law having a stroke, moved to Johannesburg, experienced dejection, and in his early thirties suffered a divorce which devastated his momentum. These experiences necessitated self-reflection which inspired him to write, and this is how he happened to be offered a publishing contract from a UK/LA publishing house. Jean-Pierre continued to write, but his subjects gravitated back towards his career interest and now he focuses on sustainable living and business with the use of Smart Technology.
Today, Jean-Pierre maintains a robust passion for innovative business and entrepreneurs. On the other side of the same coin, he is a dedicated advocate of ‘change’, sharing information and options on smart tech and processes for people, communities and businesses to embrace so that they can operate within an eco-system in a sustainable, smart, efficient and ethical manner.
Jean-Pierre believes Technology when used wisely can resolve the biggest challenges facing the human race and our planet. Smart Tech and humble Future Thinkers can reduce inequality and improve the moral fabric of our civilization.
