I am a business professional with a passion for the creative which I believe lead me to my career in production. The 12 years experience in business management, film, photography and event organisation has afforded me the opportunity to mix my business mind with a creative heart, consistently delivering to clients through practical knowledge acquired through on the ground experience. I am told my German heritage gives me my keen eye for detail as well my drive for consistent on time delivery to brief and budget.
Through this line of work I've been very fortunate to experience and produce extensively throughout Southern Africa, many countries internationally including Europe and Asia, as well as other parts of the African continent. The invaluable knowledge gained through this work has built a solid understanding of cross border trade and project management.
Having worked within and managed many crews and project teams I fully understand the complexities around people management and the importance of clear communication to achieve a common goal.
"Never leave that till tomorrow, which you can achieve today" are the words I live by and I trust my skills plus personal drive would be a valuable asset to any team.

Since then we have produced a huge range of promotional, documentary, music video and television broadcasted content for clients including, Shoprite, Unilever and Tiger Brands to name few.
