Becoming a father was life-changing for me. In a way, I finally understood what my legacy should be, is and will be – it is about creating a foundation for my children to be able to experience life to the fullest. It is about them being able to pursue their dreams. It is about them being able to grow up in a community, society, country and world that allows them to thrive. I may not be able to change the world but I will do everything in my power to ensure that I do my part in making my little patch of earth better for my having been in it.

As a writer and speaker, who was raised by his father, I have documented my experiences as a father, and will continue to do so. I recently wrote an article for MamaMagic Milestones magazine which is a pregnancy & parenting guide published by Exposure Marketing who put on the MamaMagic Baby Expo every year in Johannesburg, Durban and Cape Town. As a side note, they are why my daughter thinks I am a great father – we get tickets to see Barney every year. The article is on baby showers and the role of fathers in that context.
