BIO

Originally from South Africa, I have worked everywhere from remote Africa and Indonesia, to more recently LA where I was represented by Furlined for commercials. I am equally comfortable in all.

 

My work ranges from big budget commercials and interviews with charismatic adventurers including Jimmy Chin and Wim Hof, to intimate portraits of African child soldiers and Balinese shamans. I focus on simple human stories.

 

My once-off designed camera rigs and organic viral content has earned several Vimeo Staff Picks, featured consistently in Time, Mashable, BestAdsOnTv, Huffington Post, Fast Company, and received recognition including a Grand Prix for Integrated.
