I believe that I have the ability to make a difference by doing what I love.
I started running in 2004 when I joined Celtic Harriers due to my interest in the sport.
I was born in 1976, being the first born of three.
I became an independent person from a very young age; with a natural ability to entertain at the family holiday get together. Christmas was my favourite occasion to put on my best show! Throughout my schooling career I was always in the talent competitions and school productions. One of the highlights was attending the Grahamstown festival, at which I performed as a priest in our matric house production in 1993. When I left school I began entering modelling competitions. The titles I won have all been mentioned above. In the International Man Hunt (an international competition held in the Philippines where there were 65 countries taking part) I won the talent section where I sang ‘I believe I can fly’ (R.Kelly) accapela. It was at this stage that I realised that music was a must as part of my career. I have since appeared at many corporates and functions such as Transman, Monte Casino as well as The People Magazine Crystal Awards and to a sell out crowd at Lusito Land the Portuguese festival. I have also sung at the S.A miss Portugal, J.I.P miss teen, Revlon end of year function and I was the curtain raiser to Watershed at the opening of the new section at Cresta shopping centre.
I was born on 2 March 1990. My parents got devorced when I was at the age of 3. I attended Paarl boys High school from grade I to matric. I had my accident on a motorbike in my matric year, which left my sporting dreams shattered, but at the same time opened other doors in disability sports. I am an outgoing spontaneous person always ready for a challenge.
