After I left school I joined the South African Air Force, was trained as a pilot, and served as weekend pilot over a period of eleven years. In that time I served as a fighter pilot and transport pilot on three different Air Force squadrons. During that time I did a science degree, graduating with Chemistry and Mathematics as major subjects, and thereafter obtained a post-graduate degree in Chemistry. I did scientific research at the Council for Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR) and the Iscor research laboratory for ten years. During my tenure at Iscor I was in due course employed as management consultant and was inter alia engaged in managing work study projects. During that time I obtained a law degree and soon thereafter went into law practice. I have worked, ever since, as a lawyer, both in law practice, and as legal advisor. I am presently still retained as legal adviser of a corporation and employed, from time to time, as ad hoc legal adviser. For some time I conducted mathematics workshops at the Pretoria University and lectured at technical colleges in Mathematics, Commercial Law, Handelsreg, and Company Law.

I can truly say that law, science and journalism can only be described as some of my many passions
