I am an award-winning actor and presenter. Recently, I have moved on to producing again. I had a good spell as a director on one of South Africa’s local Afrikaans daily dramas, 7de Laan.
Family is quite important to me, so after my tenure as director, I relocated to Cape Town with our daughter, Skye. My actor wife, Ingrid, joined us recently.
Stellenbosch is where I fell in love with theatre. I started acting in school where, every year, we competed in drama competitions. (Every year I would win either best actor or best supporting actor awards). In grade 8 (1998) I joined the Breughel Theatre Group and got to act in my 1 st television series.
I had the privilege of being mentored by the late, great, Dr. Benoni de Haeck. As a director, Henry Mylne showed me the ropes. After matriculating in 1990, I went to study BA (HMS) – Human MovementStudies at the University of the Western Cape (UWC), as I was a provincial gymnast and athlete. This was not for me. I did not want to become a masseuse or physical education teacher.
So, I started freelancing in 1992. Needless to say that I have been freelancing ever since. 28 years to be exact. Many leading and supporting roles followed. Currently, I am freelancing again as an actor, director and presenter and, I am also available as program director (Master of Ceremonies). I am also an avid copywriter and voice artist.
