Pierre is an artist based in Cape Town and the founder of Cinemuse Independent Cinema.
Upon graduating as an engineer, he soon discovered that the conjunction of art and entrepreneurship can offer him a more meaningful platform to give expression to the ever-unfolding discovery of what it means to be human.
Pierre is lucky to have a supportive and loving family, remarkable friends and access to inspiring mentors.

“There is nothing noble in being superior to your fellow men. True nobility lies in being superior to your former self.”
“If you want to build a ship, don't drum up people to collect wood and don't assign them tasks and work, but rather teach them to long for the endless immensity of the sea.”
—Antoine de Saint-Exupery
From the Afrikaans language: 'To capture' or 'To be trapped.'
As the practice of mindfulness suggests, it is wise to become evermore aware of the mental constructs and narratives that we create and fall prey to.
