Like most people I wear many hats. I’m dad to a beautiful 3 year old. I’m husband to a wonderful Swiss who inspired me to leave the country of my birth, to join her in the land of hers.
I’m a South African designer, illustrator and artist. Today I call the sweet little city of Schaffhausen, in Switzerland, home.
I grew up in a family of avid explorers, every school holiday became an expedition to deserts, jungles and the African bush. I learned to drive a Land Rover at 11 and watched my dad fix them on beaches, salt pans and mountain passes. When I tell stories of my wild childhood to Europeans, they sound far fetched, torn from the adventure books I loved to read during the hours and hours of driving. I had time to imagine and can’t remember being bored as a kid.
In my career I’ve zigged and zagged. I had terrific mentors and hopped from advertising to animation to design. I could always draw.
