South Africa based writer, aspiring to the good life.
I’m a Mountain-worshipping Capetonian (and proud of it), and I can usually be found riding my scooter when I’m not working, writing, or enjoying good food and drink. I’ve also lived in Mauritius, where I was born, and thereafter in Durban, Taichung (Taiwan), Johannesburg, Rome (where my fearless scooter riding skills were forged on the white-hot fire of a road that they call “il Colombo”), and London. However, Cape Town aside, Edinburgh is probably my favourite city, and one which I’ve had the good fortune of visiting frequently. It too has a mountain of sorts, but more importantly it also has an endless retail selection of fine whiskies. I reside with my two dogs under the rule of a generally benevolent but unpredictable regime.
