I 😍 that he shares my passion for photography. I 😨 that he is holding my @leica_camera. I 🤯 that this is an auto-edit film, created by the @djiglobal app! Taken with my iPhone X using the DJI Osmo Mobile 2. Video made auto-magically with the DJI Go app auto-edit feature. Taken by my talented […]
With Gutenberg being touted as the future of WordPress it’s time to give it a thorough test drive on my personal blog. For years I’ve used this space as a test bed for personal theme developments and woonderful plugin explorations. A test bed that’s laid dormant for a while… First up is installing a new […]
It feels like it’s been a significant year, worthy of etching in this sparsely populated digital memory bank. A challenging personal year embarking on re-invention, with little daily structure or operational responsibilities. A year sans a professional title and many coffee meetings explaining why… A year of much envy and privilege. A year of many […]
The Selati Game Reserve is a 27 000 ha private reserve we’re fortunate to regularly visit. This lush green trip was with some good friends in late March. P.S. Loved discovering a serendipitous moment shared between an elephant and a butterfly in my footage!
Last week we celebrated the life of my grandpa on the farm where he was born and died 93 years later. Seeing the farm from high above highlights the changing landscape of Nelspruit.

Last weekend was spent on the river with friends, and a growing number of our offspring. I always find it hard to believe that this beautiful wild landscape is only a four hour drive from Cape Town.
I don’t know who was more keen to get a “safari car”. Max, my nearly 5 year old, or me. Max developed a very rare talent, at a very early age. He has the remarkable ability to identify a “safari car”, otherwise known as a Land Rover Defender, if it even enters his distant periphery. For Max a safari […]
These past 6 months have been a whirlwind. A work trip to Germany and then Canada. A very noisy, messy house renovation. And 3 months of “colic”, that was fortunately followed by another 3 months getting to know a gentle, happy, smiling little Malakai.
In November 2014, from Cape Town to San Francisco, I was miraculously upgraded to fly first class. For free. On not one, but two long haul flights via Dubai. A total of over 20 hours in a flying palace. It was an incredibly surreal and scarily opulent experience. It was my first (and only) time […]
