Our latest project is ‘Happiness Minute‘, nudging people to live from happiness, instead of towards it.
If you’re interested in where I come from, well then: I was born in the little town of George in South Africa. I grew up in the coastal city of Port Elizabeth during the height of the struggle for freedom from ‘Apartheid’. I put myself through University working at everything from clothing stores to bowling lanes & print shops. I studied theology & history. I pastored three Churches from 1998 – 2006, before walking away from institutionalized religion & submerging myself in the world of radio, media & marketing.
I’m married to Zuko, an art-photographer. We have four children, a herd of horses, some dogs & cats, as well as a crow.
We hope to find a way of life which is new & meaningful.
A way of life which affects the people around us & encourages happiness.
I’ve published in ‘Afrikaans’ in South Africa. I’ve been included in an academic magazine. I’ve written in English for various South African magazines (people talk magazine being my favorite) & my books are available from amazon.com
I’d like to think that my writing is inspirational, thought-provoking & very connected to what real life is about.
Happiness – the book, is the project I’m working on right now.
