A Degree in Graphic Design at the Vaal Traingle Technikon become the foundation of my consequent endeavours. I acquired the post as Graphic Designer at Tshwane University of Technology, which refine my competence as designer, encouraging the need to start my own Graphic Design company. During the same time I was employed as lecturer at Tshwane University of Technology, which I am holding now. Lecturing consists of an assortment of exhilarating tasks. Subjects that I teach include Communication Design II & III, Professional Practice II and Computers II for Graphic Design students; Presentation Drawing II and Presentation Methods for Interior Design students; and Visualisation Techniques II for Multimedia Design students. BTech and MTech students also have me as their student advisor. I am very much an artist at heart and a DIY enthusiast, making mosaic, sculpting, painting, and doing fine arts, thus decorating the homes of those whom it pleases, and my own. At a more physical level, I do ice-skating and enjoy attending aerobics classes.
