My documentary journey kicked off in 2005 after graduating with a major in Documentary Filmmaking under the mentorship of esteemed Emmy Award winning filmmaker, Francois Verster.
In the years since, I have had the privilege of working on a wide range of projects that support my ongoing passion for building a multi-skilled approach to filmmaking, specifically directing, camerawork & editing.
This passion has taken me across the globe, travelling between Africa, UK, USA & Europe where I have applied these skills to a number of notable award-winning productions.
Between commisioned work, I believe that collaboration is the key to staying inspired. Over the years I have teamed up with various talented filmmakers & musicians to produce high-quality, distinctive collective work.
Personally, I am continuously driven by my curious nature to explore the fine line between documentary & conceptual strorytelling. A curiosity I expressed in 2011 when I had the opportunity to make my first experimental short film entitled, “Fortabt: loss of love”. This very personal film was awarded Best Cinematography at the 2012 DSTV Film Talent Award & Best Short Film at the 2015 Ster Kinekor Short Film Project & got to screen in cinemas country wide.
A constant desire and drive to challenge my own film language led me to my ultimate muse, New York City, in 2015. It was here that, during a solo exploration, I made my second short film, “For The American”, a balance of conventional & unconventional documentary storytelling.
Traveling is a major source of inspiration for me and, when not on the road to a near or distant land, I call Cape Town my home.
