I was born in Zambia, spent most of my youth in south/central Africa travelling with my parents. My father was assigned to set up medical clinics and became the Medical Officer of Health in Salisbury (now Harare). I graduated in electrical engineering in Cape Town and emigrated to Canada in 1968.
With a keen interest in wildlife, I have been on several wildlife safaris across south and central Africa. Realizing that wildlife, in all its forms, is being decimated by man, I have written an African action adventure feature screenplay called SKELLEM on its demise to highlight the destructive part being played by poachers, trophy hunters, conflict diamond and arms smugglers, corrupt government officials and diplomats who use diplomatic immunity to ship rhino horns, elephant tusks, lion bones and skins to Asia.
I strongly believe that, given the media attention it deserves, all will not be lost.
Unique traits: Slowly developing an off the grid wildlife friendly eco resort on the Moon River, Ontario. Becoming an anti--poaching/trophy hunter activist.
SKELLEM Action ⋄ Adventure A macho African game ranger, with his lover, a vet, stemming the insatiable Asian appetite for rhino horns and elephant tusks, are pulled into the dangerous world of blood diamonds and arms dealing by a stunning undercover agent.
Dr. Board, I presume. Documentary A religious doctor, sent to Africa to set up medical clinics, study tribal medicines and do a thesis on leprosy, establishes an outpost and soon realizes that all the missionary outposts are in the business of recruiting tribal villagers to boost their grants from the British government making him question his beliefs and become an agnostic.
