She wandered into my heart it felt like a deep dark forest I thought she was scared of the woods but she planted a seed.
My life’s journey began in Rhodesia now known as Zimbabwe. I discovered at an early age my passion for working with young people, for seeing them develop, grow & flourish into our coming generation. I focused my energy & graduated as a Primary School Teacher. After graduating, I entered the two-year graduate trainee program at Tongaat & Huletts a sugar agro-industry company in South Africa.
The United Kingdom provided further opportunities for me to undertake my Master’s degree in Education at King’s College of Cambridge. During this period I welcomed every opportunity offered by my parent University to take periodic residencies at other colleges around the world. Doors were open unto me in Uppsala Sweden where I furthered my studies in child education, Japan- Sapporo social & cultural anthropology, the Netherlands Utrecht cross-cultural communication.
I returned back to Zimbabwe to work for SOS KDI International Kinderdorf & married my sweetheart who was working as a doctor there from Germany. We were blessed with three boys. Due to the political stance in Zimbabwe, we relocated to Germany where we currently reside permanently.
Music is my passion:
I have had the fortunate privilege to make & create music with musicians around the world. I am a professional percussionist & drummer.
I took lessons in Zimbabwe Africa. I fell in love with the Djembe West African drum & traveled to Mali & Guinea to learn from master drummers. A life changing & moving experience where I have been able to enrich the lives of people from all walks of life. My wife & I also held regular Jazz evenings with live bands at the National Art Gallery. We raised money for Orphanages & the less privileged.
I have had the fortunate privilege to work with bands like UB40, Earth Wind & Fire, Basia, Sade.
