What was the inspiration behind starting BasicData?

As an internal IT & Development Team for The Basic Group, providing software and support solutions for our internal companies, we received a lot of interest from customers about the operations software and web platforms we developed. We identified a gap in the industry and started marketing our software and services to companies outside of The Basic Group’s organization. BasicData was officially incorporated in 2018. This coincided with the launch of PEP Stores Supplier Web Showroom, which was developed by our team.

The Crew




My journey began in 1999 where I was the youngest of the first six South Africans to obtain a MCSE+I. With my new certifications in hand, I moved to the USA to pursue my career in the tech-world. There I ran a successful IT support business servicing small to medium size enterprises covering a wide variety of industries including hospitality, realty, property development and entertainment.

As a preferred Apple business support specialist, I was exposed to various Apple workshops, where I was introduced to FileMaker as a development platform. The bug bit and I sought out formal file maker training.

It was in 2012 that I returned to South Africa in search of a different and more inspiring way of utilizing my IT experience. It was within this space that BasicData came to life. Incorporating my years of software, hardware and networking experience and my time spent on the operations side of the family business, I assisted in creating a software solution for our trading needs, which we then marketed to outside clients.

With a natural creative spirit, I have a keen ability to visualize a problem from the outside and find a solution. I love a challenge that affords me the space to think out of the box and allows me to interact with people and engage with the world around me.




I have a love and passion for social media and marketing along with building long lasting partnerships and building my network. This passion grows stronger each and every day and it encourages me to be creative, inspired, and the best I can be. I love learning new tips and tricks as well as gaining more skills, knowledge and expertise in the industry that will further my career. With a Bachelor of Arts in Corporate Communication, an Honours in Brand Strategic Communication, and experience in the Influencer Marketing space, I have valuable expertise and knowledge that will carry me throughout my career. I believe that being organised, motivated, having a positive and uplifting work environment, as well as working with an incredibly talented team, contributes to a person’s overall positivity and passion for the job. I know it does for me!




Being brought up as a military child allows me to adapt to change and excel in any environment.
I prefer living in the present and gain new experiences, connect with people, new ideas and watch and interpret the world around me. With over 7 years of experience in the Supply Chain Industry, co-ordinating between suppliers and customers, I have a unique set of skills which I have now applied to my new career in the Software Development Field.
I believe that being organized and structured enabled me to always ensure orders were delivered on time and in my current role that all projects are completed on time.
When I am not co-ordinating projects, I can be found out in nature exploring a forest, mountain or catching a wave on my longboard. Oh, I prefer mayo with my chips.

Once I had a good understanding of HTML I quickly moved on to PHP and WordPress.




My career as a photographer started before I knew. From shooting events and head shots in my final year in high school as a hobby for extra money.
