About the speaker

Ashley began teaching English and Drama in the early nineties, leveraging some of his Arts degree and Educational studies for the chalkface - teaching for four years in Durban. His acting career began on stage at The Natal Playhouse by the end of the nineties.

His move to Johannesburg offered a career in television, more particularly, as an anchor for SABC3, the Home Channel and as a regular presenter on Lifestyle Matters and the Travel show Going Nowhere Slowly (which provided material for his book: ’Red Car Diaries’, published by Struik. As a Travel writer, he was a columnist for Country Life). He has since presented the series: “Another Side Of Africa” now on Amazon Prime.

As an actor, he has played lead roles on eTV’s Scandal!, as well as support roles on Isidingo (SABC3), Generations SABC1), 7de Laan and Binnelanders (Kyknet). His international work includes ‘Warrior’ for HBO, and ‘Deep State’ series 2, for the UK based Endor productions.

As a voice artist, he is a radio and TV commercials regular, and works from a home studio with eLearning and other corporate learning audio modules.
