Born and raised in the heart of South Africa (Johannesburg). He started at the Dance Factory age of 12 as a student then moved to become a technician while he was in school. Straight after school he joined a dance company. FATC (Forgotten Angel Theater Collaboration) Directed and choreography by PJ Sabbage for two years. During his second year he audition for PARTS (Performing Art Research and Training Studios) which he was accepted to feather his studies. After four years he graduated from PARTS in 2010. During his studies he did several works within the curriculum and outside the curriculum. Outside the curriculum he work with a Choreographer and a dance teacher David Zambrano on his latest work in 2009 and he did 50 days in Costa Rica where Zambrano was sharing his way of teaching. Within the curriculum he participated on several works which where then taken on a tour. A collaboration duet with Steve Michil (± even but odd) which was made in South Africa. He also did a solo (Time flyers…) in 2006. On the several works something that is constantly visible is rhythm and it is a way of executing movement or a language. After graduating from PARTS he went back to Forgotten Angels Theatre Collaboration. He then created a solo for Argentina Tour called (Monkey See Monkey Do) in 2011. In 2012, he was invited to be part of Grahamstown National Art Festival for his duet ”Catch On’’. Lately he’s a freelance artist, dance teacher, composer and a technician.
