My friends call me a glomad (a global nomad lest you don’t get it). That’s a particularly apt word, because I am always trawling all corners of the globe, looking for stories. As a result, I have slept in some seriously strange places – on a bed of ice in the Arctic circle, on the floor in a traditional Japanese hotel, on the sand dunes in the Wadi Rum Desert in Jordan … and even on the floor of a Thai cargo ship. Mostly however I tend to sleep on aircraft (if I had a dog, he would bark at me when I eventually come home). I am passionate about trucks, cars, travel, food, wine, people and hugs – so I write about all these things. Except the hugs.

I’m Cyberstoep’s resident (self-appointed) motoring fanatic. My life has always revolved around anything with wheels and an engine. It doesn’t matter if its an old banger, the latest hot-hatch or a fancy 4×4 – any excuse is a good excuse to take it for a cruise, spank it at the track or go bundu-bashing (the mud-and-rocks-side-of-a-mountain type, not the exploring-Joburg’s-pavements type). Otherwise, chances are you’ll find me lying underneath one of my beloved toys or with my head buried in its engine bay, tinkering away. OK, I admit, this also the reason why our stoep is covered splotches of engine oil … Oh, I also occasionally get my greasy little paws behind the keyboard (that’s splotched with oil, too) to write about other fine things in life. Good food, interesting getaways, quiet family time at home, anything really.

I’m a bookaholic born and bred with too many novels on my already over-flowing bookshelves. When I’m not reading Lauren Beukes or binge watching New Girl, I’m writing … about everything. My interests and passions change almost daily as I learn about new things and causes. If I find it interesting, I will write about it. I don’t understand why anyone would spend money on a sports car when they can buy books. I’m more a dog person than a cat person, although I would love to own a bunny one day. I can never seem to tame my very curly hair. I will never say no to a movie date and I prefer my moijto shaken not stirred.

“Ohana means family. Family means nobody gets left behind or forgotten.” This cute little quote from the Disney movie Lilo and Stitch is basically what I stand for. I have a massive family. No really, my dad is one of six kids and my mom is one of seven. And if you mess with one of them, you mess with me (scary face). With these beer-drinking, lang-arm-dancing stoutgatte as my biggest joy in life, I enjoy writing about all things related to family and the activities that keep them busy – braaiing, eating, drinking, watching sports and fighting (which is mostly about sports).
