I am a highly-creative, disciplined and very passionate individual who thrives on creative challenges. I have been a co-owner and creative director of an agency/production company in South Africa for 12 years and am now looking for a new challenge and broader horizons. In my personal capacity I am also a professional playwright and director. I have an insatiable appetite for creating projects that look good, make sense and resonate with people on a deep level.

Work experience

Creative Director

C Squared Productions

As creative director I am responsible for the creative output of the company. This includes managing and directing a team of directors and an editor. I also write and direct my own work for the company. As a company owner I also had to dabble in a bit of HR, which I find both challenging and immensely rewarding.
