Engineering Manager & Sneaker Connoisseur
Kurt Muller joined the Cape Town Create Team as a Senior Front-End Engineer in December 2010. Growing up, this avid sports fan dreamt of floating amongst stars.
Kurt had initially wanted to pursue his childhood aspirations and become an astronomer - but soon realised that this would require an A in Higher Grade Maths and Science (so he chose the next best thing.) He set his sights on Web Design and Development and hasn’t looked back since! After finishing up at Bergvliet High School, he headed off to Varsity College where he completed his Diploma in IT Programming.
Guppy (as he’s been known since Std 6), brings a willing attitude, a wealth of Front End Development experience as well as knowledge of UX to the QuirkStation. His good friend, The Shaun Oakes, describes him as eccentric, funny, strange (and a few others which I won’t mention). He’s got a killer old school music collection, and an even better stash of sneakers. This Liverpool fan loves playing and watching sports – cricket, volleyball, baseball, golf, table tennis and Curling. Manly! That said... this all-rounder reckons he could rival Justin Bieber with his delicate voice.
