My Story

From: Stellenbosch / Western Cape

Having competed in the Obstacle Course Racing World Championships in the USA, and placing 7th internationally, I know what it takes to be brand aware with sponsors supporting me through this endeavor. Having won the Ford Ranger Odyssey competition in 2014, I was able to successfully fulfill my role as a brand ambassador. Additionally, I competed in numerous 4×4 competitions and acquired driving skills as well as social marketing skills.

As an explorative young man, my desire to visit new places and find hidden gems has enabled me to expose niche locations and great vistas with my fellow South Africans. My drive to explore is further driven by a passion of rugged environments and a devotion for mountains. This has allowed me to reach new unexplored places and to bolt new climbing lines to share more of the mountains with people (as an experience philanthropist). This has, however, put me in some onerous situations where skill, mental dexterity and toughness was needed which in turn has made me a more resilient person. Consequently, I believe I will be a valuable asset to Toyota and a much needed team player for the future.
