Alex Brakspear - A Professional IT Consultant in South West England
WHAT, YOU MAY ASK, IS A TOKOLOSH? OR A TOKOLOSHE? OR A TOKOLOSHI?
That’s a little hard to explain, because it is many things.
In Southern-African folklore it is the local version of the bogey man, a terror that goes bump in the night. It is the bed-time story that parents tell their children to scare them straight.
I grew up in the beautiful country of Zimbabwe and although my homeland has its troubles now, I wanted something meaningful to me as the name of my business.
Thus Tokolosh is me, Alex Brakspear, I am an IT Consultant who specialises in SME support. I concentrate on Apple Equipment and Networking but have experience in Windows and an understanding of how to knit the two together.
