Before joining PLAAS, he worked as the Agricultural Science educator at Bizimali Secondary School in KwaZulu-Natal. He also had an opportunity to work, contractually, for LIMA Rural Development Foundation under the Abalimi Phambili Project as Agricultural Facilitator where he worked with small-scale and subsistence farmers assisting with inputs linkages, technical support and market linkages amongst other.

His current research explores the impact of large-scale investments in communal areas.
