I'm a pianist, TV director, animal lover, very talented cleaner and flamboyant dreamer.
I've been living in this house for 16 years and after 16 years of dreaming, those dreams became reality. Now I just want to share it with everyone!
I have 3 four legged children - a Great Dane (Danie), a Basset hound (Barry) and a brown dog (Dora).
I am privileged to travel to many amazing destinations locally and abroad as pianist with one of our country's greatest divas, Amanda Strydom.
My pet hate when travelling is to feel that my privacy is being violated. Like Marlon Brando said: "Privacy is not something that I'm merely entitled to, it's an absolute prerequisite"... therefore I would describe my own style of hosting as charming and socially lubricated, without compromising anyone's privacy.
