Notable clients have included working with The Sharks and the Stormers/WP, as well as with UCT in the Varsity Cup and the Women’s Springbok rugby side. He worked with Ajax Cape Town in the PSL and was non-playing captain for the SA Ladies golf team at the world championships in 2014 having worked with them for two years prior to that.
