Growing up in the Eastern Cape I have fond memories of camping holidays along the Wild Coast, feasting on oysters and seafood, exploring the rivers, beach combing and collecting fire wood for midnight bonfires. Moving to Cape Town and being constantly amazed with this beautiful city and the surrounding countryside has to offer. The mountains, the oceans the wild springtime flowers as far as the eye can see. For me the privilege of working in this city with all its natural beauty its exciting and diverse population and it’s wonderful laid back attitude. It’s a place I would never trade. I look forward to welcoming you.
