Born and raised in South Africa, I studied television & film production and specialized in post production from the start. After a two-year stint in the UK cutting news, I returned to Johannesburg and then Cape Town where I spent the next ten years as flame artist, VFX supervisor and commercials editor. During a year-long sabbatical in Portugal, I became a dad, learnt a new language and worked as a full-time flame artist & DIT.  Home with my family is now in beautiful Colorado, USA.
