About Us

I was born somewhere, and over the last 43 years I have been trying to grow up. Along the way I went to a prestigious university, two times, where I learned about things. Then I stayed around in Cape Town, South Africa and did various things for different famous and important people. I ended up where I am now. A romantic anthropologist, a social media community manager, a web editor and an award-winning photographer. I have survived my chemical based darkroom, outlived silver based film and I am trying to continue doing stuff in binary code now. I love food and wine and remain a fulltime student of life as apparent from my diverse interests and training. I am always looking for a challenge to work with odd and inspiring creative people.
