Morné Lombard, Red Ruby IT

About Me

At an early age, I discovered that I have a very big passion for Information Technology (IT) and Entrepreneurship. By utilising the various IT and entrepreneurial skills that I have learned and developed over time, I was able to start my own software company, Red Ruby IT. Through my company, I was able to do what I love, building a business from the ground up and developing custom software projects for clients.

Apart from business-related stuff, I like to spend time outdoors such as going mountain biking, hiking, camping and river rafting.
