Face of Africa 2000 – Cape Town Good Hope Centre

Kora Music Awards 1999 – Sun City

As I was building a name for myself , I was mainly freelancing for lighting companies , that I had worked with at Sun City . At a later stage I was using lighting suppliers to meet my lighting needs as I started to supply lighting equipment as well . I Then started to build up my own lighting stock .

Other experience was as a freelanced on movie sets as a lighting spark . This gave me an insight to the camera and what light was required for a good picture . It was also difficult to find a happy medium between Theatre / Rock n Roll and TV . Over time I feel I have found a formula that gives a good product for TV as well as the Live Audience . It is from this experience I gained , that I chose to specialize in live TV productions
