After starting Atlantic Digital in 1992, he designed and installed some of the first Local Area Networks in Cape Town for Waltons, Regional Services Council, UCT Medical School and Bellville Municipality. He established Atlantic Digital as the preferred hardware and software supplier and introduced Microsoft Windows and the internet to many Cape Town clients.
