Hi, my name is JJ Prinsloo. I am a young, passionate and innovative guy with an obsession for learning new things, figuring out how the world works and taking on new challenges. I work well within teams collaborating to solve problems, produce new fresh and innovative ideas or solo where I can pop my headphones on and do what I do best.
On Thursday morning, 21 July 1988, I was born into the wonderful world that we live in. I think I still remember hearing “Nothing’s Gonna Change My Love For You” by Glenn Medeiros , which was in the top 5 hits in the UK on that day, on the drive home from the hospital. (I’m kidding of course.)
I had a pretty normal childhood with loving parents and there’s not much to tell which is out of the ordinary except that I attended High School from 2001 to 2006 when I graduated matric from Hoërskool Dr. EG Jansen. A well-known high school in Boksburg, South Africa.
Between 2001 and 2006 I attended Hoërskool Dr. EG Jansen, a well known high school in Boksburg, South Africa. After graduating matric in 2006 I went off to obtain various qualifications in the computer science field.
