Bio

Born in Pretoria and living and working in Cape Town, Quintin is a web professional and user experience specialist with a love of science, psychology, design and language. Quintin likes to devour the interesting, profound and challenging, which has led to a lifelong love of TED.

Quintin designed the TEDxPretoria website and has maintained it since 2015, and joined the team officially in 2017.

After a stint in Johannesburg as the lead UX designer for a technology startup, he struck out on his own to help companies improve their customers’ digital experiences. He is a partner at ShopCreatify, a distributed web design collective specializing in e-commerce websites, which serves clients located all around the world, from the USA to Hong Kong.

Rumour has it he resides in Muizenberg with a black metal band — or, possibly, a cat he has named after a black metal band. Close proximity to Quintin is hazardous to anyone without a high tolerance for terrible puns.

Favourite Quote

Deep in the human unconscious is a pervasive need for a logical universe that makes sense. But the real universe is always one step beyond logic.

Frank Herbert, Dune
