About

I grew up in South-Africa’s spectacular Eastern Cape province. After school and university I worked in corporate London as an Analyst Programmer; mostly in financial services. During that time I was lucky enough to get married to Lene, the most wonderful person I’ve ever met.

In 2006 we moved back to the Eastern Cape. We founded a farm stall and a restaurant and I continued to consult to some of the biggest companies in South-Africa. Our family also grew with the addition of 2 girls, Elke (in 2006) and Cara (in 2009).

In 2013 I remotely joined a pharmaceutical software company situated in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and early in 2015 my family and I moved continents again to join the company mentioned before on a full-time basis. We currently live in Downingtown, PA; a great community in so many ways. and we’ve had no choice but to become Eagles fans – Go Birds!

I’ve been a certified Microsoft Professional since 2000.

My passions are Nature, Photography & Software. My absolute passion is for the African Wilderness. Everyone has to experience the deserts, plains or bushveld of Africa just once in their lives – there’s nothing like it!

  1. Greetings,
    Are you related to Phoebe Rhoda Heunis – we need to follow up some inconsistencies in her biography. They lived for a while in Elgin where the husband was the manager of a fruit farm, according to some info I have. They lived in Rustenburg for many years. Thanks for whatever tip you can give me.

  2. Ek het Phoebe Heunis in die sewentigerjare in Tulbagh op my Tannie Dimsie Krone Heunis-hulle se plaas Waveren ontmoet. Sedert die tagtigerjare doen ek navorsing oor die Heunisfamilie. Ek sal dus graag kontak wil maak. Groete, Gert Heunis (gertheunis@gmail.com)
