About

I graduated with a Performance Diploma in Theatre at UCT in 2004. Before that, I trained as a Contemporary Dancer at Jazzart Dance Theatre. Over the last 16 years, I have gained a lot of theatre and dance experience, with performances ranging from Shakespeare plays such as MacBeth and Hamlet, contemporary theatre like Verkeer and Altyd Jonker, to Physical Theatre Plays such as Karoo Moose and Onnest’Bo. In 2004, I was awarded the Best Student in Movement Recognition at UCT; in 2006, I was nominated for the Best Newcomer in Dance and Acting at the KKNK Festival. In 2007, I started my TV career with the eTV series Shooting Stars, SABC Stokvel and Montana. In 2008 I was awarded the Best Actor in a lead role and Best Original Choreography Naledi Award for my work in Karoo Moose. I graduated with Honours Degree in Directing and Education at UCT in 2012. In 2014 I Directed Mike Van Graan’s Return Of The Ancestors for Grahamstown Festival, Vryfees in Bloemfontein and Artscape. In 2014 I graduated with a Masters degree in Directing at UCT.
