I am a creative/visual artist who likes to use recycled materials as my medium of choice, I am a teacher and learner especially in previously disadvantaged contexts, and a true nature fanatic. I Iove gardening - especially cultivating herbs and veg and fruit. The great outdoors is my energy source of choice. As often as possible I hike South Africa's awesome mountains and savannas and swim in its beautiful rivers and oceans plus explore the stunning wild coastline. I love riding my mountain bike all over with my dogs in tow or horse riding with my daughter. I have a passion for sustainable living solutions, and for creative DIY maintenance and construction. Making things and life beautiful is my game, and living ecologically friendly in one-ness with nature is my aim. I also write children's stories and books and I have 3 beautiful kids and a beautiful wife. I live in Johannesburg with my family in a suburban farm type house. Freedom is my lifestyle aim so we often venture out to natural areas and are busy looking at relocating to the wilder and more natural coastline of South Africa, to a dream farm soon as we find it! I am intent on living the goal of living free and green, and do so with increasing integrity each day.
