I want you to close your eyes for a moment and picture a scene with me. Imagine a ninja. Now imagine he has incredibly hairy arms and legs. Now imagine he has a penchant for medium bodied red blends. Now imagine he has six dogs. Now imagine he married a German in order to learn obedience. That, in a nutshell, is Riccardo. Having grown up in Joburg, Riccardo left the concrete jungle for the lush beaches of Cape Town at the tender age of 25, where he has made a name for himself as "that guy that tore the ligaments in his ankle at the top of Lion's Head and had to get carried down by the mountain men." In his spare time he likes long walks on the beach, making fires and beating himself on the chest every time he succeeds, and pretending he knows more about rowing then he actually does. His IT skills are equally impressive, and range from "can recite Pi to 36 decimal places" all the way to "has read every single Douglas Adams book." His areas of interest are virtualisation, databases, security, random internet memes, guerrilla marketing, and buying pointless gadgets that he'll probably never use but simply has to have anyway.
