The world is a crazy place and sometimes we end up in places we never dared dream of. After dropping out of high school in Standard 9 and spending my early twenties working in the hospitality industry, I saved up enough money to buy a one-way ticket to London. I spent 5 years traveling the world and going on some incredible adventures.
But I wanted more. You know that feeling? Like there’s something missing and you’re meant to be somewhere else, doing something different. I needed to find a way to express the joy, love and compassion for the world that I felt bubbling inside me. I wanted to find a way to empower others to change the world for the better – through work or play. I yearned to find my purpose.
You would have thought that I would have dedicated my life to charity work or volunteering in far-flung places wouldn’t you? Nope, the universe (or whatever you choose to call it) had different plans for me. And I mean, who am I to argue with that?
So here I am (after some pretty interesting detours) … the founder and Chief Craftsman at a boutique marketing agency that’s trying to change the world by encouraging and empowering businesses to do well by doing good.
It’s a pretty cool job if you ask me.
I am a proud member of Rotary International, the world’s premier humanitarian service organization. I am the current Public Image Chair for the Rotary Club of Newlands and the 2018-2019 Chair of Marketing and Branding for Rotary District 9350 which covers Namibia, Angola and the western half of South Africa.
