*City/State where you live*
Franschhoek Winelands - in the Cape, South Africa.

*Current place of employment*
Paper Chefs

*Job Title*
Well, this is a very small company; I'm the production manager, but also the only prepress operator. We only do colour digital (VDP etc.); which is nice sometimes, but sometimes I feel I should seek more variety.

*Hometown City/State*
As above...

*Favorite Musician/Band*
This is too difficult to answer... I like any music that is good within it's genre/context.

*Favorite activity outside of work*
Good food and drink!

*Store you would max your credit card at*
Bookstores, real or online - I'm a compulsive book-buyer.

*Something you must do or accomplish before you die*
Design and fabrication of a very large geodesic / membrane structure to donate as an events centre or workshop.

*Other occupation you would like to try*
Fine art printing; intaglio, letterpress, photogravure etc. (Does that count as a different occupation?!)

*First Car*
Jeep Wrangler

*Favorite Movie*
"Koyaanisqatsi," maybe.

I'm a bachelor

*Favorite Vacation spot*
Burning Man

Thanks Nicolas!
