ABOUT ME

I’m a traveler at heart, with a passion for all things visually appealing. Over the last two years, I’ve been fortunate to have filmed in over 20 different countries such as Nepal, Ireland, Morocco, USA, Rwanda, India, Saudi Arabia and others for clients such as Nike, Coke Cola, General Electric, The United Nations, Maersk, Western Union, Oxfam, and a couple more. I’ve had my work showcased on TV, published in magazines, exhibitions, used for in-store advertising and online usage.

Having finished my last years of high school in Paris, France, I went on to obtain a four year Bachelor of Business Administration degree from Boston University, MA, USA and graduated in 2008, majoring in Entrepreneurship and minoring in Hotel Management.

The next year and a half was spent mostly between Paris and India; starting a small clothing line, obtaining some cooking skills from the culinary institute Le Cordon Bleu, and doing some freelance photography amongst it all. Once visas ran out, and realising I neither had a real passion for clothing nor cooking, I returned to South Africa in 2010, more specifically Cape Town. After spending a couple months behind a desk doing mostly finance work, I decided to quit it all and instead started Thelonious Studios – a small rental photography studio named after my dog, Thelonious aka Pooch.

A short while later, a business partner and I started a small production company called One.Dog.Chicken. It was during
 this time that I picked up a camera and started to learn about filming, editing, websites, digital media and pretty much absorbed as much knowledge of everything relevant. After three eventful years, we decided to go our separate ways and pursue our own callings. This led to me starting a boutique creative agency called GKC in early 2014.

So nowadays I get to direct, shoot,  strategize, conceptualize, implement, and oversee various and vastly different projects, all the while gearing to get GKC known and respected as a world class content creation agency.

Oh, and I’m a pretty chilled guy.
