BIO

As I get older, I have come to realise that the start and end of my working life will revolve around the Arts, especially drawing and painting. And people. I like people. 

It started forty years ago when I began a degree in Fine Arts at the University of Cape Town. I never finished it, due to a death in the family. Next to art, I loved film, so it was natural to pursue a filmmaking career. 

I made films about life: the hard times, the happiness, the despair, and ultimately about hope.

I engaged with people through the discipline of documentary film, through storytelling. Over decades  I became adept at the art of crafting other peoples stories. But enough is enough. Right now I need to tell my own stories, but this time without a camera. Just the polished lens of of a lifetime of experience.
