After extensive travels, i have decided to take it easy for a while in one place. I have now moved my architecture studio to Hermanus, in the western cape.
Living at the beach is simply the best!!

A young man, doing my own thing at my own pace.
An interesting individual with open minded attitude towards life.
Pursuing a serious profession, but adventure takes preference.
Loves making music and hanging out with cool people from all over the planet.

Cool beans!
