I got this personal domain in 2001 when my daughter Enya was born. Since then, I have made many versions of this website and told my story in different ways. At the end of the day, what is important is to share my passion for the beauty of the natural world that surrounds us and doing so inspire people to re-connect with nature.
When Chris Brown, CEO of the Namibian Chamber of Environment asked me to contribute to a best practice guide for mining, I discovered a new interest : capturing the good side of mining. An amazing challenge which I extended into a personal project to feature mining activities in Namibia from big operations down to artisanal small-scale mining.
Together with a South African music composer – Kevin Leicher – animated still images create a true world of beauty and serenity.
A major turn in my life was to realise my dream to travel through Africa in 1994. Four years on the road in an old landy changed my life forever.
Another dream was to build my own house in Africa. In 1998, I built our family house in Gordon's Bay near Cape Town, South Africa. Then in 2017, the real dream came through when my new partner Lisa and I built our new house totally off grid in a game farm north of Windhoek, Namibia.
Lisa and I are now preparing an overland expedition camper truck. The dilemma is the size... MAN CAT 8x8, TATRA 6x6, IECO 4x4... So while we are resolving this issue, we thought about upgrading our roof-top-tent-ranger to something a bit more adapted to our age...
We are also compiling a list of the most amazing places we believe are worth visiting or re-visiting. The list is growing every months and when the list will reach 1001 places, we should be ready to go on the road again.
