Profile Information

I am a mixed race man from Cape Town South Africa. I was born in a into extremely dire socio-economic circumstances in a township in Bellville South, Cape Town. I started writing verses in the sand at the age of 12 years old. I was a very introverted and withdrawn child and penning my thoughts in childlike verses became a way of expressing myself. The pen, thus, was my first- and still- my best friend...

I started writing in my mother tongue, Afrikaans (a Dutch dialect). I only started speaking English at the age of 20 years and wrote my first English poem, entitled "Circle of Sorrow" at the same time. Six years later I started writing primarily in English. 

I have written a few short stories, a novella and hundreds of poems. None of my work have been published through an established publisher. My favourite medium of writing is poetry and essays, the latter being my strongest medium.

I am inspired by anything... I write about socio-ecomic issues and 'things about "love"'.

One of my mottos are: Passion fuels everything...

I am a philanthropist and writer by birth and am currently employed in a women empowerment Community Based Organisation in Cape Town, South Africa.
