The fearless leader of Lifetree Marketing, Saskia is a creative and analytical marketer, with a passion for the travel and hospitality industry. Having gained an MBA (Masters degree in Business Administration) from the University of Cape Town, Saskia has overseen the brand development and successful implementation of sales and marketing strategies for several award-winning hotels and lodges.

Portfolio Manager & Brand Strategist

After gaining international exposure in Dubai for five years, Kirsty completed her BCom Management Sciences degree at Stellenbosch University, majoring in Marketing Management and Entrepreneurship & Innovation. Kirsty is not the type to get bogged down by emails and phone calls. When she’s not being carried off the dance floor, she finds time to dabble in being a social media whiz, master organiser and gin enthusiast.


Marketing Coordinator and Account Executive

Daina completed a BCom in Marketing at Varsity College and went on to complete a Post Graduate Diploma in Management in Marketing at UCT. Although Daina works in marketing, she could very well be working for a circus, judging by the finesse at which she juggles her job and passion for highland dancing. As an outgoing person, too-long a silence in the office stands no chance against Daina’s cheery chatter.



Berdene is a whizz with numbers and enjoys ‘the bottom line’. She has worked for many prominent hospitality establishments locally and abroad, and has made her home in the beautiful Mother City. She enjoys time spent with family and friends along with a good bottle of bubbly, as well as treating herself to a night of comedy.

Be warned – Tommy is infectious. His energy, enthusiasm and quirkiness will turn your spark to a flame – and nothing is every mundane when he’s on set. Yet beneath the bright eyed eagerness is a dogged, highly skilled editor who knows what shots are needed – making him uber valuable as a director/editor. In my more than 10 years of working with Tommy, I’ve yet to request a re-edit or reshoot … cause he gets it – and he gets it first time, every time!! Ugh! Feels like I’ve just shared a trade secret I’m not so sure I really want to share…

Tommy gets it! He captures the feeling and essence of a message better than I could even have briefed him. He is a pure pleasure to work with.

I have known and worked with Tommy for over 10 years now and am always amazed by how professional and efficient his work is. His understanding of the industry and fun approach to work helped us get what I needed done easily and of international standard. I’d recommend Tommy for any of your picture media related requirements.

Thank You so Very Much for this fast turn around, not to mention the great quality of the video. Your work is fantastic!! I honestly didn’t expect it to be done this fast with this quality. Thank You So Much!!
