Of all the websites, on all of the internet, you’ve stumbled onto mine. How delightful! 

I'm 26 and currently living in London and I like to make stuff happen. I recently completed my masters dissertation in development studies at the University of KwaZulu-Natal. My dissertation evaluated the implementations and outcomes of human-centred design in the lives of informal traders by looking at an area known as Warwick Junction in Durban. 

I am also a professional photographer working both locally and internationally. I enjoy organising events and conferences, running side businesses, and I occasionally develop film in my bathroom. The internet fascinates me, coffee sustains me and travel thrills me. 

Now that I'm a grown up, I’d love to work for a design consultancy that believes that design thinking and human centred design has the power to change the world. And maybe own a houseboat.




I've been photographing for 4 years and I love it. I really really do. I love being able to capture sincere, honest and warm moments between couples, families, and people. Please take a wander around this website and see some of the lovely stories I've been honoured to be a part of. Please do get in touch if you would like to work together, locally or internationally. 


I've had the pleasure of being involved in some wonderful projects over the last few years. Click on the thumbnails to find out more about each of them.
