I have over 15 years experience in R&D which includes 8 years in drug discovery and 7 years in the animal health vaccine industry. This involved working for a vaccine manufacturing company, Onderstepoort Biological products where I was responsible for product development and commercialization of new and improved vaccines such as Lumpy skin disease, Rift Valley fever, Fowlpox and Contagious ecthyma (Orf), and Enterotoxaemia (Pulpy Kidney). I am also passionate about training and mentoring the future generation.
Spending time with friends and family, nature, shopping, and reading my bible.
