I was born and raised in Dakar, Senegal. Year after year I would go watch the arrival of the Dakar Rally as they came over the dunes, and on to the finish line. I was instantly hooked. Ive been doing road-trips with friends since the age of 16, and have always had a passion for new cultures, new places, and new faces. The planet, and how people live has always been fascinating to me.

Now that I have kids, I am honoured to share that passion with them. As a family, we try to be outside and take advantage of the off road lifestyle as much as possible! Its in my blood to always be on the move! It drives my wife crazy sometimes.Through our successful online platforms, we have received sponsorship from major brands, including: Snomaster, Takla Products, OppositeLock Africa, Ctek, Frontrunner, Hi-range Safari City and a few more.
