Producer and Director

I've worked in Television and Film for over 20 years - first as an editor, then a director and then as a producer. I've made commercials (God help me), films, children's animation and murder documentaries (one needs a balance!). I consult to production companies and studios on workflow, production techniques and 2D and 3D pipelines.

The Inge Lotz Story (Podcast)

Nominated for the Vodacom Journalist of the Year Awards (2022). Nominated for a 2022 International News Media Association (INMA) Award!

In 2005, Stellenbosch student, Inge Lotz, was brutally murdered. Investigators found apparently watertight forensic evidence against her boyfriend, Fred van der Vyver, who was adamant he was innocent. Catherine Rice and myself produced a podcast series on this case: one of the most bizarre and interesting murder trials in South African history.
