I've loved doing all kinds of graphic art since I was a kid in South Africa. I graduated from the Johannesburg High School for Art, Ballet, Drama and Music and then went on to the Wits Tech School of Graphic Design.

Driven by a desire to travel, I went to Pasadena, California for a Liberal Arts degree and ended up marrying an American girl. After several years living in the Mid-West, working as Creative Director for a magazine publishing company, my family and I decided it was time to seek warmer climes. We packed up and moved to sunny Austin, Texas. [Win!]

Since moving to Austin, I've really enjoyed being a full-time freelancer. I enjoy working in all parts of the graphic art business. From developing and comping ideas for clients to art directing magazines, marketing and design projects, and often doing the actual layout and illustration, it's all interesting and frequently challenging.

My personal interests are graphic art, illustration, history (mostly European from 1618-1815 and the World Wars), science, brewing and drining craft ales and running. Oh, and long walks on the beach.
