As a documentary film-maker, Barefoot Traveller, Inquisitive Explorer and Ambitious Adventurer, Travelling Toes orbits around the documenting of my journey, the interesting people I meet, the magical sunrises and landscapes of Africa, and all I create and manifest along the way.
From photography, videography, editing and writing, to my travels, stories, unique moments with fascinating characters of Africa, and my unconditional love for communities and local people, I combine these passions together to create short inspiration videos and stories of all I become a part of, as well as the ways in which I pay it forward to others through giving and creating – with little to no money – proving how simple it is to be a giver and of service to others... "The more you have, the more you need, the less you have, the less you need."
I am inspired and deeply moved by all Mother Africa has to offer. Her 'in-your-face' attractiveness as well as her hidden, rough and raw realities which still shimmers with this majestic beauty, buried beneath the surface of her soil if you dig a little deeper...
Each piece of my travels, of my puzzle, is a fleeting moment in which I am able to capture and share, from her exquisite skies, her rugged mountains and infinite oceans, the evergreen valleys and different textured soils, to her mass diversity of cultures and people, as well as her visitors from other lands who become so deeply intertwined with Her, so much so that they feel they cannot leave.
I have a connection to our Earth, a love for all people, and a story to tell. Although my style of work is RAW I feel this type of footage adds character to this process of revealing pieces of Africa. The perfection can only lie in the imperfection – as one can't exist without the other – even in the word of 'imperfect' does it state 'I'm-perfect'.
As I step into each moment with an open heart, a free mind, and one heck of a tenacious attitude – I seek to share my experiences with the people of the world, showcasing the infinite splendour that's on offer and to stir inspiration within the hearts of people, to move them, to share with them my creations, and to show how simple it is to make a difference, to chase your dreams and to never give up or lose hope.
Through filming, connecting, communicating, living, capturing moments and service within and around communities, I am exhilarated by the change I witness and become part of...
As the traveller of these toes that walk barefoot through life, I embrace and step into the moment. "Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail."
