About Me

Hi, I’m Derick Hewetson.

I’m passionately curious about life and the world in which we live, as well as how to make sense of it all.

I’m an IT professional in Johannesburg, South Africa. With almost 30 years of experience in such varied fields as aeronautical engineering, journalism, technical support, product management, web hosting, web design and application performance management, I always bring a unique perspective to any project.

On a personal level, I’m an easy-going guy, definite vegetarian and wannabe vegan, cat slave and cyclist. I was born in Namibia, the land of wide open spaces and big skies. Raised in the United Kingdom, Germany and France, I have been living in South Africa since 1985.
