Marc Forrest is a blogger, techie, Apple fan boy and dad to three gorgeous kids. He started blogging in 2004 after being inspired by the Joblog.co.za team in Johannesburg, and started a blog called Durbzblog.

He is the co-founder of Izimvo.com and creator of SAiPhoneApps.co.za, which focuses on South African iPhone app developers and applications.
