My first twenty years were spent in Africa, the next twenty in Europe, and the last ten were in northern California (Marin County). I now live in London and Cape Town.

I was born in Johannesburg and studied law & economics at the University of Cape Town and the London School of Economics.

After graduation I worked in finance for several years, and was lucky enough to visit thirty six countries during this time.

Lisa convinced me to quit, and we moved to a tiny island in the Seychelles (Ile au Cerf) where we started our illustration licensing business Last Lemon. Through Last Lemon we have sold more than two million books in over twenty languages.

My art practice was born in California in 2016, when I began contemporaneously recoding the news.
