Llewellen loves the outdoors; hiking, camping, and “braaing”,
but at the very same time, you could also catch him quite easily behind a fantasy book,
or in front of my PC playing one of my favorite games.
Llewellyn completed a National Diploma in Nature Conservation in 2011, followed shortly by a Bachelor of Technology in Nature Conservation in 2015. Both of these were completed through the Cape Peninsular University of Technology, in Cape Town South Africa.
During the next 10 years he was privileged enough to live and work in some of the most beautiful regions of South Africa. The host of experiences, to date, have shaped his views and values, and have imprinted on him the importance of sustainable living; enjoying what we have, but making sure that future generations are also able to experience the wonders of creation.
Originally from the coast, the ocean will forever be imprinted on his psyche. However, living in the bushveld of Limpopo for five years left its mark as well. Whether in the bush or at sea, Llewellyn believes strongly in environmental education.
Married to a beautiful wife and blessed with a fantastic son, Llewellyn and his family now live on a 30 hectare (74 acres) farm, where they are trying their hands at homesteading.
Llewellyn’s interests do not lie in conservation alone though. He has a passion for gaming (mostly computer, but consol works just fine too), music (when he takes out his bass guitar), fantasy (in the Tolkien, lore, and other mythological sense), and history, to name a few.
Feel free to check out some of his writing samples below.

Apollo, the patron god…
