I am a world builder firstly, followed by an author, and then lastly a business owner.
I finished high school in 1997, and unlike most of my classmates, I decided to follow the route of apprenticeship in IT rather than a formal tertiary education. For 10 years, mine was the life of a corporate drone when in 2007 I made the decision to start my own business with two friends.
In 2004 I started writing in earnest, after having been an avid science fiction and fantasy reader since middle grade. Primarily I had been reading epic fantasy, and since I had been a Game Master in various role-playing engines (the traditional D20 kind, with pen, paper and books), I was already adept at building worlds. Work on my first epic fantasy (The Pallus Trilogy) began. Building the world for 5 years, I aggressively began working on the first novel in 2008 and finished it in 2012. Now I work on any number of projects simultaneously.
Sportwise. I am avid tenpin bowler, working with a provincial body to grow awareness of the sport in South Africa. I enjoy my football (soccer), fanatically supporting the team that my family has supported for many generations, Liverpool. Its rare that I miss a game and can get quite passionate while watching.
Lastly, I speak, read and write German fluently. Primarily thinking in German and translating on the fly, I often assemble weirdly constructed sentences. Its not unusual for me to assume I have said parts of a sentence, not actually having verbalized them.
