I grew up in a small farming town in South Africa called Dundee. It’s in the middle of nowhere, and that means I was fortunate enough to spend most of my childhood immersed in nature. Nowadays however, I can be found hibernating in my Cape Town studio where I compose music for Film & Television.
Growing up, I was an actor at heart. I studied drama from age 8 and that has and always will be where my real talent lies. But at some point I picked up a guitar and discovered that I wasn’t half bad at playing the thing, or holding a tune for that matter. Years on, a University degree later, I’ve been masquerading as a creative entrepreneur.
Between 2005 and now, I’ve released a solo album, had a whole bunch of my children’s books published, written songs for, and acted in television commercials, been a voice-over artist for many radio and TV commercials, and started a company called Black Forest, where I compose music for film and television, as well as produce and direct small-scale films.
