The person behind the blog post
Jason Warner joined the Cape Town Quirk office as an Education intern late in 2010. Jason naturally gravitated towards a life online after spending many hours on his dad’s computer playing Duke Nukem 3D and he has found himself behind some screen or other ever since.
Growing up, Jason wanted to be an astronaut, but he got a little side tracked and ended up studying Journalism instead. He is quite opinionated about current affairs and if he could change just one thing in the world it would be to get rid of lazy people. He would describe his personal motto as being that hard work pays off.
Jason secret reason for wanting to work at Quirk is to learn as much as he can to maybe go back to a newsroom someday as a better reporter. He doubts however that he will ever want to leave, despite ther fact that his most used phrase around the office is “oh crap”.
He cannot live without Facebook, Twitter and the Daily Maverick and we hope to have many interesting and thought provoking blog posts from this opinionated young journalist.
