As a writer, I delight in exploring the beauty and the essence of our oceans, and the relationships people have with nature and each other when nature is at the centre.
As an underwater photographer, I combine my love affair with the aesthetics of the underwater world with my keen interest in abstract and contemporary art.
As an impact investment specialist, with a particular passion for the ocean, I draw on my thirty years’ corporate consulting, advisory and research experience to build entrepreneurial purpose-driven businesses and investment funds which are part of the exciting global ‘fourth wave’ - an era of connectedness and consciousness.
I studied at Rhodes University (MSc in Ichthyology – Marine Protected Areas) and the University of Cape Town (MBA at the Graduate School of Business).
I am a bit of a global vagabond, equally at home in South Africa (where I was born and raised), Mauritius, Spain or Australia. I have also lived and worked in Canada. I am proud to call myself a Capetonian. From my current work desk, I look out over Kalk Bay Harbour onto False Bay.
I hope you enjoy exploring these pages and please don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.
