I was born and bred in the little town of Benoni, which is located in the east of greater Johannesburg South Africa. If the name sounds familiar it is because it is the same place that the gorgeous Oscar Winning actress Charlize Theron originates from.
I currently hold three degrees: BA with a double major in Communications and Marketing; BA Honours in Communications (cum laude); M.Phil in Communications (summa cum laude).
For as long as I can recall I have always harboured a passion for the latest and greatest the technological world has to offer. As a result I have been an avid video gamer from before I could read, an Internet surfing fiend since puberty, a sporadic blogger beginning in 2005 and a fan and frequent user of social network services since 2007.
I have had the privilege of writing guest articles for technology and gaming based publications, such as BandwidthBlog, and I am always open to experiencing new business and entertainment endeavours.
HansHaupt.com was created as a digital medium through which to sound my voice through the written word. Over time, however, my interest grew and I founded Vamers.com in 2011 – a highly successful and award winning website for all things ‘geek culture’. I have written well over 1000 articles on the topics of gaming, geek lifestyle, movies and so much more, and even expanded the Vamers brand into the online retail space. I also have a burgeoning YouTube channel where you can find me putting my words into video format.
