Born in Johannesburg in 1946 I have spent my entire life in Johannesburg where I went to art school in 1964.
As a result I have been in the visual side of the advertising and design business for decades.
All the awards that I have won for creativity have been based on the visual side of things. That is why writing for me has been a totally new adventure. An adventure that I really enjoyed.
For the last twenty years I have run my own design and advertising company. The company specialises in making my clients stand out from their competitors through creative innovation. As a result my clients have been with me for decades.
Ad Mad is a collection of humorous stories from the crazy world of advertising.
You always thought that those stories about the crazy things that went on in advertising were a bit exaggerated. You’re about to learn that they were tame in comparison to the hilarious things that really happened.
During the golden years of advertising things were a lot crazier than what they are today.
