 What do you love about events?  

“The build up towards the event and all the work that goes into creating a perfect concept and seeing it manifest. Also learning new skills, travelling, meeting new people and the happy look on the clients face after a job well done.”

What are you listening to / reading / watching at the moment?

“Listening to: Dr Tumi – “Nothing without you” , Reading: My Bible , Watching:  The news.”

Who inspires you?

“David Tlale and Bonang Matheba, their work ethic, commitment to their brand, professionalism and how they carry themselves. Also because they never lose focus no matter what personal issues they go through. They have invested in themselves as brands, have put in the hours and now they are reaping the fruits of their labour.”

Favourite food? “Ice cream.”

Quote to live by: “Do what you love and love what you do; because nobody can do what you do like you do!”

“In five years time I will be working even harder than I am now and still establishing myself as a brand and business.”

WHAT ARE YOU READING / WATCHING / LISTENING TO THE MOMENT?

“I am currently reading a book called ‘The Age of Innocence’ by Edith Wharton, watching The Good Place on Netflix and the Great British Bake Off and listening Mac Miller’s new album Circles.”

WHO INSPIRES YOU?

“Both my mom and dad. My parents have each taught me valuable lessons about life that have helped me to discover things about myself. Most recently, my dad has inspired me with his determination and perseverance through all kinds of struggles in relation to finances and health. My mom has inspired me with her ability to always see the positive in situations and people. She has shown me that you are never stuck in a negative situation unless you allow yourself to remain unhappy or unsatisfied.”

FAVOURITE FOOD: “Watermelon”

“I have no idea where I’ll be in five years time because at the moment my plans change depending on what comes my way but I hope I will be doing something that is exciting and that I enjoy. At the moment the plan is to have moved back to Cape Town, completed my articles in law and working as an attorney with a focus on property law or taxation law.”

QUOTE TO LIVE BY:  “Always be kinder than you feel.”

WHAT ARE YOU LISTENING TO / READING?

“Use This Gospel by Kanye West Featuring KennyG and Clipse. I read through like half of The Satan Seller at the beginning of January but put it down cause it was getting to deep for me and have just started reading The Subtle Art To Not Giving a F**k by Mark Manson.”

“Myself, because whatever has to be done in my life or growth I expect must come from me, it’s always my choice.”

FAVOURITE FOOD:

“Braaied wors and steak with chips.”

“I five years time I will be rolling in money! Ha-ha, I would say that I honestly don’t know and haven’t planned that far, probably will be doing a lot of grownup stuff (working, paying bills) but I have always wanted to have my own business hopefully will get that going.”

QUOTE TO LIVE BY:

“You can become successful at something without knowing what you're doing.”

WHAT DO YOU LOVE ABOUT EVENTS?

“It is not so much about love. Working in events is like catching a new wave that’s not easy to ride – it is a new experience. I see life as a wave - you never know what wave you going to get, so you have to ride it to see where it takes you. It is a gift.”

WHAT ARE WATCHING AT THE MOMENT?

“Motivational videos.”

WHO INSPIRES YOU AND WHY?
“All the positive energy from the people that work in the SQUAD office as well as the people who believe in me. This energy is my fuel to keep moving forward.”
