I am based in Cape Town, South Africa and am mainly interested in Proteas and Ericas of southern Africa. I also like photographing in countries I visit. Some of my photos have been taken in Antarctica, Egypt, Falkland Islands, New Zealand, South Georgia, Tanzania, the United States but mainly in New Mexico, and a few in Arizona, California, Florida, Nevada, Texas, Utah, Washington DC and New York.

I studied Computer Science at Rhodes University but only became interested in plants much later.

I was a 2nd Bergvliet Cub, Scout and Scouter but then moved to become the Regional Team Coordinator - Scout Programme in the Western Cape, South Africa from 2015 to 2022 and have a keen interest in Scouting (hence my time in New Mexico at Philmont Scout Ranch).
