Twenty Seventeen

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 […]

Selling though storytelling

A fantastically told founding story behind Naadam, a sweater company breaking a cashmere cartel. This video perfectly highlights the importance of good storytelling in shaping a genuine customer connection with a brand, and in turn selling lots of products. 

Selati

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!

Vermaaklikheid

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 went droning in Mauritius

In the spirit of trying to adventure more, coupled with a personal challenge to capture, create, and actually publish more content, I’ve made a short edit of our family holiday (family not included in the video…) to Mauritius. I’m completely amazed what can be achieved with an iPhone, a GoPro, and a very smart drone. I almost […]
