Adding to the team of crazy Cape Town QuirkStars in the month of love in 2012, Lucre Van Breda joined us as a Junior Front-End Engineer. Lucre (aka Pies) has had a love for digital and technology for as long as he can remember. So, it made sense that after high school, he headed to the Cape Peninsula University of Technology to study. After a 3 month internship at Quirk, we realised we needed this dude in our team and so he came back to join us full-time.
Lucre reserves a special place in his heart for his Xbox 360 and doesn’t go a day without checking out Googleand Bungie.net. His ideal day off would naturally involve beer, friends and video games. He’s described ashumble, funny and empathic and once sported one the best afros Quirk’s ever seen. A man of many talents, Pies is also pretty gifted at playing the Bass Trombone. True story.
