I love to travel, immersing myself in different cultures, connecting with the people as an independent traveller. My work has been inspired directly and

indirectly by my adventures.The travels began as an overland trip from Nepal, traveling through the Middle East and Europe arriving in England. Like

most Australians, I lived and worked in England until I was lured to South Africa.

My love for the local Pondo and Xhosa people in the Transkei nurtured me for several years, living and working in the Transkei at Mkambati Game

Reserve, close to Nelson Mandela’s birthplace.

After leaving the Transkei I sailed on small boats across several oceans working as a deckhand. My final port, sailing under the Golden Gate

Bridge, landing in San Francisco.

I lived in California for 26 years with my family. I now live in Melbourne, Australia.
