What on earth is a Super Bowl

I sat down with my American roommates to find out what all the hype was about, and try to understand how this strange version of rugby works. I didn’t just ask the easy questions. I brought out the big guns like, what’s with the obsession around the commercials, and do they really consider this the world ...

My first few weeks in Cayman

My first few weeks in Cayman were insanely busy. Not busy like those people who are watching Netflix and lying upside down on their couch, like real busy. We were finding our way around a new island, finding homes, finding cars, finding banks, filling in form after form and sitting through full days of training ...

Reflections 2015

Apple gets into selling watches, Star Wars breaks box office records, renewed terrorism fears in the Western world, and one final idiotic move by the South African president to finish off the year, costing the country billions in lost investment and more.   2015 you filthy #%*&@.

Egypt Part 1: Pyramids, Camels and Museums

The World’s Obsession with Penis Size

There’s a running joke between my friends and I that one of the dudes in our group has a 13 meter penis. It came out of some guy discussion a few years ago and now we can’t even remember why we say this, but we do anyway. Guys seem to love talking and joking about ...

#FeesMustFall

Today marks a change in South Africa. After the youth stood together, government bowed to the pressure and agreed to a zero percent increase in university fees for 2016. This is more than students simply not wanting to pay for fees. Most of South Africa’s people live in poverty, with many working multiple jobs ...

The Quest to Become a Star Performer

Over the last two and a half months I’ve been attempting to turn my year of auditors into actors. Some rose to the challenge, others awkwardly looked directly into the camera as they said their lines, and some shone like seasoned professionals. After last year’s Deadline Day video, I wanted to put something together ...
