Born in Cape Town, South Africa in 1970 to André & Joan (and older brothers Henri-Jacques and Francois), Paul André Blom grew up with a love of movies and music. This led to him developing a drive to not only absorb as much of it as possible, but also to create it himself.

SL, Stage, Top Forty, Muse, LMG, Something Wicked, BPM) & syndicated newspapers and supplements (incl. The Star, The Argus, Die Burger, Son, JIP, Sunday Life), to international publications (incl. Fangoria Magazine), and on-line locations like Mahala;
> makes movies / music videos (incl. production / directing / editing);
