Systems Thinking informs his approach to strategic and legal questions, healthy relationships to reaching purposeful agreements, and plain English and visualization to drafting contracts.

Living in a developing country, and one of the world’s most unequal societies, it is his dream and duty to do something that can make a meaningful positive difference to the vulnerable situation of so many in South Africa and elsewhere.

From this the idea of using comics as contracts was born, which he is developing, researching and advocating as a way to improve contractual relationships where at least one of the parties are not contractually literate.

He was born on 13 April 1970, studied business and law at the University of Stellenbosch and partly at the University of Leiden. More recently he completed an MBA specializing in Executive Management at the University of Cape Town.

Together with his wife, two teenage daughters and 2-year-old son, he lives in Cape Town, where he tries to balance his work and family life with some cycling and surfing.
