As a kid my love for cartoons was excessive. I wanted to be one, or at least have a cartoon pet. Neither happened so I just drew a lot.
In my early teens I also developed an insatiable thirst for travel and adventure, so I skipped University and strapped on a backpack, deciding to teach myself along the way. 8 years, many countries and several interesting jobs later I returned home to Durban and went straight into Freelancing.
