Origin Story

I was sponsored to join the ‘365 Tour ZA’ as an international speaker in 2019. The tour brought international and local experts together to speak at community run conferences for the Microsoft 365 Technical Community in South Africa. International speakers were hosted by locals Tracy van der Schyff, Alistair Pugin and Warren Marks. Joined by professional videographer Adam King of ‘Incite Videos’, we travelled from Johannesburg to Durban and down the east cost, finishing in Cape Town. Adam was on board to help us film a documentary about the technical community in South Africa.

Over the last few years, I had taken up amateur videography, challenging myself to produce as much as possible from my mobile. I saw this tour as an opportunity to put my craft to practise and share our stories in video and live streams while on tour. It was under these conditions and inspired by working alongside Adam, that the vision for MobileStories was formed.

I’m still learning. I want to continue to learn alongside you. The best ideas and inspiration comes out of community, discussion and sharing. What I have figured out, I want to share with you. Don’t expect perfection or inaccessible advice from an uber-expert. I’m just like you. I have stories I want to tell, thoughts I want to put out there and journeys I want to share.

So let’s get started.
