Born in Johannesburg, Anthony and Michelle met each other in 1987. Anthony had completed his 2 year military service and was working as an apprentice as a Fitter and Turner Machinist. Michelle was completing her final year of school. A year later they tied the knot and have never looked back.
The couple worked in the Industrial Engineering industry for a number of years before deciding to re-locate to the Lowveld. The decision to relocate was based on providing a better quality of life for their children, Matthew and Melissa. They established their construction business in 2001 and as Hoedspruit has developed they have grown with the town. Their son Matthew worked with them in the family business for a couple of years and he is now studying to become a personal trainer in the fitness industry. Anthony and Michelle are also very health conscious and have a good balance with a lifestyle which includes time for exercise when they are not working. They have a love for Cape Town and also enjoy a game of golf and outdoor activities.
