Quirk is now Mirum

Wright Theunissen


Financial Manager & Frenchie Super Fan

Since Grade 10, Wright knew he wanted to be a numbers guru. His passion soon took him to the University of Free State to get to grips with Financial Management. Several exams and plenty of strawberry Steri Stumpies later, Wright arrived at the Cape Town QuirkStation as Financial Manager in October 2014.

Despite being a far cry from the sea growing up, Wright's walls were adorned with posters of Pro Surfers and Lance Armstrong (Ahem). All grown up, he’s since swapped the posters for TV’s but SuperSport is still the order of the day with a few movie channels coming in second. Wright is also a proud dad to one beautiful human child, Nicah, and five (yes, FIVE)French Bulldog fur children! OMG!

Described by his friends as loyal, honest and brave, Wright identifies most with ‘Wolverine’ because he never backs down from a challenge. Despite his macho spirit-cartoon, he confesses to actually quite enjoying shopping (just don’t tell his real hero – Frank)!

“You must be shapeless, formless, like water. When you pour water in a cup, it becomes the cup. When you pour water in a bottle, it becomes the bottle. When you pour water in a tea pot, it becomes the tea pot. Water can drip and it can crash. Become like water my friend.” – Bruce Lee
