About Me

HESTRE VAN ZYL

I’m a down to earth animal lover with a passion for anything and everything to do with computers. Growing up on a small farm a few kilometers outside of cape Town - I found myself spending hours and hours researching and watching videos regarding the latest tech and merchandise that the world has to offer. Technology simply amazes me.

Coming from a Physiotherapy background I made a complete three-sixty and decided to ultimately follow my passion and study Graphic and Web Design at Friends of Design. Some of my other passions include competitive pc gaming as well as staying active either through swimming or going for a stroll at the closest beach.

My passion for computers influenced me to be curious, to be curious about the different computer languages and to try and understand them. I find wordpress, html and css the most interesting of all. I enjoy making websites and working on them on the front and back end. Designing something and then building it from scratch and seeing how you as a developer improve after every website you finish is astonishing and I love doing it.
