THE TEAM:

Tim Harris

Tim is a Durban boy, educated in Cape Town. After trying his hand at banking and politics, and spending far too long getting his Masters, he decided to see if he could find some waves on the west coast of Africa. He’s now serving as a Member of Parliament in South Africa.

Mike “Stone” Sternberg

Stone grew up in Port Elizabeth but qualified as a CA in Cape Town. He has worked in Europe, the US, the UK and the Caribbean and has a bad case of the travel bug. He hopes to explode most of the wayward preconceptions South Africans have about Africa. He’s now living in Lisbon and working for a multinational company on their Africa strategy

John “Lurker” Fleming

Lurks hails from Welkom but went to school in Joburg and studied at UCT. He dabbled in accountancy long enough to be admitted to the Board of Chartered Accountants then threw in the towel and joined the trip to London. He’s now living in Johannesburg and working for a finance company.
