About Me


To meet interesting people. To see lots of countries. C(urrently 37 and counting) To play better piano.


I am a South African living 3 months a year in München, Germany, and the other 9 Months in Capetown, South-Africa. I'm a freelance photographer but am still assisting also. Car photography is my speciality but I do all kinds of other stuff. My biggest passion in life is classical music, especially Bach. I'm a very easy-going guy and get along with basically everyone. Am blessed with alot of great friends. I love travelling and adventure.


Live now.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Being dragged through Mocambique's ocean by Whale-Shark. (No I'm not lying) Shark-diving with the Great White Sharks outside Capetown. Hanging with nothing but my 2 arms from a bridge where people normally bungee from. Swimming in the ocean in the night after a few muchrooms. (Done it only once)
O, and I did a overlanding trip on my Motorbike from Germany all the way to Capetown. Was an amazing adventure.
