About me

I specialise in designing visually stunning and practical environments, making temporary installations look permanent. I have worked as team leader to provide a full creative design service, project and production management and have had the luxury of building and producing all projects in-house in the workshop connected to the company, giving me hands on experience in dealing with set building and management of the build team. To date I have worked on a diverse range of installations which have taken me from a temporary exhibition venue made up of 50 converted shipping containers to a small pop-up brand displays, from a private party on the golfing greens of Fancourt to the debut of The Voice in South Africa, from the fields of the Meggaliesburg to a 1500 square meter world class television studio and everything and everywhere in between. No matter how big or small, I love a challenge.
