Thanks for visiting my website!
A little bit about me... My passion for Swing music and entertaining started at a young age. For as long as I can remember I have been fascinated and hooked on the ‘Rat Pack’ era of music. My biggest musical influence growing up was my Gran who was in a South African version of the group ‘The Andrew’s Sisters’.
I grew up in Durban and my singing career started as a member of the Kearsney College Boys Choir. In the 2000 Choir Olympics in Lynz, Austria our choir earned a 98% achievement and brought home two gold medals and one silver.
In 2004 I made the move from Durban to Cape Town to complete a Bachelor of Arts degree at AFDA (African Film and Drama Arts) College. During my time as a student I joined Stardust restaurant in Rondebosch as a singing MC and waiter! I had a blast working there for 4 years alongside performers like Graeme Watkins - The Graeme Watkins Project and Swing City, Nomfusi Gotyana and Matthew Gold of The Kiffness.
I joined the professional world of entertainment in 2008, and have since performed at hundreds of events (corporate, private, weddings, birthdays, shows, launches, conferences and restaurants regulars) nationwide.
I am happy to say I love what I do!
