Where it all began!
I grew up in Johannesburg, South Africa. At sixteen, and shortly after high school I travelled to the UK and studied for a brief time as an electrical engineer. I had a difficult time settling, as sixteen year olds do so at eighteen I moved back to South Africa and the reality of being a grown up kicked in. I had to get a place to stay and find work.
My career started in hospitality as a waiter and within a couple of months I was promoted to manager. At eighteen, I led a team consisting of twelve waiters, eight bartenders, four chefs and four kitchen staff.
I was then offered a job working as a bar tender in an extremely influencial rock club in the South African nineties music scene, where I also learned the craft of sound engineering. This was my first real taste of working with creative minds.
