About me


I have a super cute son named Leo (4 years old), a cat called Po (evil and crazy) and a boyfriend (Leo’s Dad) named Troy (takes awesome photos + makes cool movies). We live in Big Bay, Cape Town and can’t get enough of our insanely beautiful sunsets.

Before I became a Mom I was a freelance web designer, in love with WordPress (currently having a love/hate relationship with Gutenberg). After I had Leo I started a new business – because I was struggling so bad to juggle being a freelance web designer and stay-at-home Mom, you can read all about that here – and it’s (finally) turned out to be the one that stuck!

Ubuntu Baba baby carriers is what I spend most of my time on these days and I can now see why I had to go through all that I went through as an entrepreneur before I got to this. ‘Failures’ now seem like stepping stones and useful experiences that got me to here. I still have much more to learn but in the meantime I will be sharing some hopefully useful info with you on this blog.

(2018 update: A lot of the blog posts on this website have been moved over from my previous blogs, which is why they are back dated as far as 2013, trying to clean up my internet space so I can keep track of all the bits and pieces I’ve written over the years! So it’s a bit of a jumble of everything! My focus going forward, will be to blog about all the cool things I’ve learnt and discovered while running my current business, Ubuntu Baba.)

If there is anything in particular you’d like me to write about, pop me an email and I’ll do my best to help!
