A natural entertainer and writer with a knack for comedy, Conrad spent most of his time behind camera, writing and directing, and only started moving in front of the camera after the acting bug bit him in 2014. Since then he’s been hard at work to improve his skills. In 2015 his student short film, “Wi-Not”, which he wrote, directed and starred in, won Best Picture along with a host of other nominations at the Open Window Institute. He had a supporting role in the stage play “Once upon a Song – The Musical” and was cast as a lead in an upcoming TV series, “The Crossing”, which is currently looking for a network for broadcasting. He also made two featured extra appearances on kykNET’s Binnelanders in late 2015 and early 2016 as the “Balju”. Not afraid of hard work and long hours, Conrad believes that each creative endeavor deserves his very best and his best is what he always aims to give. Born into an extremely artistic family, Conrad grew up surrounded by actors, singers, composers and writers and the entertainment industry has always been a part of his life in some way or another. At the age of twelve he started playing guitar and dabbling in film making and both of these disciplines have been a part of his life ever since. In high school he took up drums and spent time as part of the school’s drama academy, performing in a few shows, but stopped to spend more time focusing on his instruments. Since high school he’s written several radio ads and performed voice-overs for ads, programs and stings. Conrad went on to obtain his degree in Industrial engineering at the University of Pretoria and always kept his finger in the pie of the arts during this time. After working for a year as an industrial engineer and being frustrated with the work, he returned to the arts by obtaining a National certificate in film production from the Open Window Institute. He was awarded a merit bursary for being the best student of the year and is currently studying his BA degree in Film production at the same institution.
