About me

I’m autistic and over 50. Afrikaans  is my first language. I also speak some German and Xhosa.

I live with my mother in a suburb of Cape Town, and I’ve been working with Marius Cloete for 20 years.


I’m the Director of Programme Design at ProjectManagement.co.za and I provide various in-house services to Marius Cloete Moulds.

I develop learning programmes and teach Project Management and project scheduling. If you’d like me to do work for you, click this button.


I’m the Collaboration Director of the Autistic Strategies Network. My personal focus areas for advocacy are paradigm, health and the communication rights of non-speaking autistic people.

I present workshops and seminars, and I am available for radio or television interviews.

Other than travel and accommodation for out-of-town conferences, I do not accept payment for these activities.

For events where other speakers are paid, I provide the banking details of a chronically ill autist who needs the money for survival.


I create things for aesthetic enjoyment. These include drawings, paintings and silly sound files.

The last painting I sold bought several months of vastly improved health for a friend who has a chronic illness, so I intend to produce and sell more. 

Gradually I’ll probably migrate my art-related content to alphabetania.com and some of my other domains dedicated to these pursuits.
