Favourite Quote:
A river cuts through rock, not because of its power but because of its persistence.

Hobbies:
Fitness and training is my passion! I love to motivate others to get active by posting inspirational videos on my social media platforms and pushing them in the gym. I also enjoy socializing and meeting new people while experiencing new and exciting places along the way. I am competitive by nature so outdoor sports give me a thrill. I live for the adventure.

Short description about yourself:
I am originally from the "friendly city" Port Elizabeth, now living in the 011.
I have a great sense of humour and a passion to make a difference in this world. I am a bit of a romantic and believe in love at first site. I strive to leave a lasting impact on the people’s lives that I have touched. I have a big heart which is why I pride myself on helping others whether in health and fitness, personal problems or charity work. I like to prove people wrong and show them that if I can achieve it they do not need to be scared to try themselves.

What will your contribution be if you should become MR. South Africa:
I would like to set an example for all South Africans, from all walks of life, by showing them that a small act of kindness or gesture goes such a long way. We have such a beautiful country yet our wildlife are being poached and our people are turning to crime. I want to make a difference and if I won MR SA, I would have an opportunity for people to hear my voice and see the difference I can make by raising money for charities that are close to my heart and leading by example to show that together we can make a big change. I stand strongly for wildlife conservation and anti-poaching, I am strongly opposed to domestic violence against women and children and want to be the voice for people that feel like no one is listening to theirs.

What qualities should a MR. South Africa title holder have:
Mr SA has to be a leader, someone that talks with conviction and is passionate about what he does and what he believes in. As a role model and man, integrity is vitally important. To be a gentleman and show that chivalry is not dead, is a strength and not a weakness. Mr SA will be someone who is respected and is respectful.

To be an ambassador of this country, one also needs to be aware of the issues we face and be able to speak on behalf of every South African. Be strong enough to be a positive force in the negative situations we face and believe wholeheartedly that we can make a difference.
