Growing up in South Africa, Renier has always been inspired by the beauty of his country and the stories of his nation. A proud South African, Renier has a penchant for doing things out of the ordinary, never quite following the rules of life. Renier is a scientific dreamer. He enjoys writing, poetry, film and art and splices it all together with a big dollop of quantum physics, quantum paradoxes and the secrets of the Universe. Renier is quirky, awkward, vegetarian, slightly crazy, spiritual, a massive film boffin, animal lover, cat obsessed, amateur astronomer, celebrity enthusiast, reality t.v. boffin, Gleek, Zombie Apocalypse planner and an Agony Aunt for every person who meets him.
