At the age of ten, after realizing that drawing and cartoons is my thing. I decided I wanted to do animation. I just love the world of 2d animation. 3d I also love, but 2d was the initial pull.

Future plans?
Long long term, or short term?

Whatever you want to tell me?
Definitely to get my teeth into animation. I want to be known as one of the best animators in the world, that would be a great achievement. But the dream is to have my own animation studio; where I am producing anything and everything animation. From video gaming to movies, even series.

What keeps you motivated?
I guess just the feeling of being unfulfilled, that I am not there yet, I have not reached that goal yet.

Do you want to know how I started, if I was taught?
I just presumed you taught yourself, please tell?

Well I did teach myself, I basically just stole with my eyes. I would see a 2d animation picture I loved and I would want to replicate it, until I felt I perfected copying what I saw. It wasn’t enough, it didn’t feel like my own identity. I then drew what was in my head, that I couldn’t express to people. I love everything football, I had to throw that in there.

Who do you support?
I would say because it’s a family thing, I have been groomed since a young age to support Man United. But I do love them on a personal level. I have a few other teams I cheer for. I like the underdog. I like the underdog story, where the underdog prevails.

Bafana Bafana?
Definitely, it’s my country! They will get there. We only stepped into the word cup into the nineties, how can we be expected to perform at the level of those that have been involved longer.
