I could never do what I intend to do without the aid of some Accomplices. Some extraordinary people came into my life unexpectedly and my life is all the better for it.

The following God sends are my The MaD CA Accomplices and without them I would be nowhere.

David Harraway - Freelance video producer

Dave has worked in the video industry as a freelance video producer for the last 10 years. Although much of his work has been in the corporate arena, he specializes in outdoor sporting events. These range from shooting various sailing regattas off the Cape coast, to extreme trail runs staged throughout South Africa such as the 250km Kalahari Extreme Marathon, often referred to as the ‘Big Daddy’ of trail runs in South Africa, and the 50 mile and 25 mile Addo Elephant trail runs held in the Addo Elephant National Park. The highlight of this work is following the event through some of the harshest environments in the country on a quad bike with camera in hand capturing all the action as the participants deal with what challenges nature can provide.
