I was born and raised in South Africa where I obtained a BAFA majoring in graphic design from the University of Pretoria and then worked for a design studio in Johannesburg for the next four years. After leaving South Africa, I lived and worked as a designer, in Chile, the United Kingdom, and New Jersey, USA. After three years on the East Coast I moved to Taos and founded FEEL Design Associates in 2008, with a focus on designing and producing books, corporate identities, packaging, brochures, vacation guides, and websites.
