About Me

  • I studied to become a Sport-Psychologist but my life had many twists and turns. I was totally “off-track” for some time but got saved.
  • I was the mental coach at the Blue Bulls for an extraordinary successful period of five years (2006 – 2010) when we won the Super 14 three times. I started working with the Golden Lions rugby team in 2015and that journey and adventure is a fairy-tale-story!
  • I am the author of a number of exciting books. My first book “Wie Wen – Ek of my kind?” (Winning is for kids… and parents) is a book for the parents of primary-school children. My second book, “Die geheime van ‘n Kampioen / Secrets of a champion ” is a book for teens from 12 to 17. My third book was released in June 2011 with the title “Wenplan vir die lewe” / “Game Plan for life” – abook about my own life – losing direction, questioning everything, my time caught up in pornography etc… My forth book: “KOELKOP – dink soos ‘n wenner” / MENTALLY TOUGH was released in 2012 – 20 keys to become mentally tough in competition. “Wenplan vir jou kind se lewe” (only available in Afrikaans) – was released in July 2014 and won the Bible-media – Cordis trust- prize as the no. 1 Book in South Africa on parenting in 2015.
