Triathlon has been my profession since 2004, since it interfered too much with my studies(qualified accountant and employed by TATA STEEL - but they give me flex time to pursue my dreams and goals). I am a devoted family man, married the love of my life, Lizanie, in 2007, got a 2-year old little princess and expecting a boy in February 2011.

My first family consist of mom, dad, 3 brothers and myself being the 2nd of 4 boys.

Live is most enjoyed with loved ones and holidays on a beautiful place - beach or mountains.

The first light shone upon me in Pretoria 1981/12/22. Welkom, a Gold mining town was where I grew up an finished school. After that I moved to Potchefstroom, where I studied, started triathlon in 2000 and that was my summer(8months in the year)base.

The next phase of my life, I will continue in the beautiful Stellenbosch(50km) from Cape Town - a business(training) and lifestyle decision. Time will tell the outcome, but with my firm believe I have only great expectations.

Thanks for the Support and reading.
