I was born into a family with strong hospitality genes so once matriculated it seemed only natural to follow in their footsteps. I enrolled at Stellenbosch University as a B.Consumer Science student. Upon completion of my four-year degree I wanted to explore the world and found myself settling in Surbiton, UK. Whilst working in London, at one of the world’s largest oil and gas companies, I frequently traveled to Europe, which granted me the opportunity to learn more about various European countries, their people and their cultures.
In 2004 I returned home and started my career in the events industry as part of Cape Town’s, and today South Africa’s, leading Wedding and Events coordinators. Over three years I soon progressed to a senior coordinator and after coordinating and assisting with more than 100 weddings and events I decided to focus my attention on the more specialized field of décor. During this year I worked on many high profile weddings which required intricate décor construction. I also had the opportunity to be exposed to large corporate events like the Nederburg Auction and the J&B Met.
I took a short break from the events industry to focus on my new family, but I have always been drawn back, inspired by the ongoing developments within this exciting and ever changing industry. I cannot imagine myself being involved in any other line of creativity and so starting my own business seemed like the next, most natural step in my life.
Now, I can finally live out my true passion.
