I was raised in a city called 'Surfers Paradise' (Durban, South Africa) so a major part of my life has involved sport. I have played competitive sport and have represented my province in athletics and have played competitive football, cricket, swimming, squash and tennis. My first degree was in the performance arts (music, drama) and I have performed in over thirty productions. Apart from photography, I also like working with computers which have proven to be a big asset in the work I do.Back to top
