About The Artist

In 1984 British Rock Band, Queen, performed at Sun City. Their tour garnered negative press the world over: It was during the height of Apartheid era South Africa and international sanctions had declared South Africa a no Rock & Roll zone. Throwing caution to the wind, Freddie and his band mates went ahead with their plans for a five-event tour. 

My parents, already married at that time, managed to attend one of these infamous shows. And on that rarest and most rebellious of occasions, I was conceived. 

Little did my parents know that this setting would determine the pace of much of my life. 

“Rebellious”, “daring”, “charming”, “brilliant”, “outlandish” “audacious” were some of the words used to describe the legendary band’s infamous performance. These same words would be used to describe me as I went about finding my place in this world. 

When I tell people that the theme of my life consists of things that shouldn’t happen but happen anyway. This is essentially what I am referring to. Against all odds, this classic rock band managed to circumvent political establishments and international sanctions; all in the hopes of finding a way to perform to their adoring fans in a country ostracized by the rest of the world.

My Core Values

passion

I love that I get to use something that I’m good at to enrich the lives of so many others. It is the love for my craft, and the value it brings, that gets me up in the morning. The law of attraction stipulates that like attracts like and the same can be said about passion. My most successful assignments have been those where clients are passionate about their stories, craft, services and businesses. Their passion inspires me and helps me do my best work.


integrity

Your dreams are given to you for a reason. But they need to be nurtured and treated with the proper respect, if they are ever to see the light of day. Having worked with clients and creatives from all walks of life, I can confirm that honest and open communication is vital to the fruition of any end goal. Whether I am brought on to create or consult, clients can rest assured knowing that I bring an educated and informed approach to every assignment.

growth

Whether you are an established mega conglomerate or are just starting out with your own business, the number one thing that will bring you fulfillment and keep you motivated is growth. It is the universal benchmark by which all things measure themselves to determine whether they are flourishing or withering. With nearly two decades of personal experience ,I take great pride in taking my clients from where they are to where they want to be.


quality

Having spent the majority of my academic and professional career working alongside some of the world’s most respected broadcasters, artists, promoters, businesses and brands, something really interesting started to happen. Their high standards, unquestionable work ethic, commitment to excellence and exceptional attention to detail, rubbed off and has become the foundation from which I operate.
