I was born and raised in Cape Town, South Africa.
After studying Nature Conservation at the Cape Peninsula University of Technology (CPUT) I decided to steer down a path of passion and pursue a career in professional bodyboarding, chasing waves and competition around the world.
In late 2007 I was intrigued by the idea of capturing the experiences I was so lucky to enjoy on my travels. I needed a water housing and camera. My interest shifted from riding waves to photographing them. With a worry free outlook on life, I spent most of my 20’s circling the globe, while competing and also took the opportunity to hone my photographic skills as Photographic Media Manager for the International Bodyboarding Association (IBA). Spending endless hours in the water, while documenting action sports at the highest level, my interest grew toward the intricate and ever morphing shape, colour, texture and incredible detail waves had to offer.
Today I find peace and joy while immersed, camera in hand, always moving and always searching for an interesting image to unfold and capture.
