Maurice was born in Bermuda and has been traveling the world since the age of 5. In 2000, Maurice along with his family took a trip to South Africa to build a church in a small town in the Eastern Cape called Bisho. After being there for a few weeks, he made it his mission to return annually. In 2012, Maurice invited a small group of friends to join him in Cape Town, South Africa.

In 2013, he started Two Oceans Travel & Tours and hasn't looked back. Each year 25-30 people take advantage of all that his travel ventures have to offer. Maurice ensures that at least one day of each trip is dedicated to giving shoes, socks, and school supplies to children in the local townships. His goal is to travel to every country within the continent of Africa and take anyone who wants to join him. Maurice has over 10 years’ experience in event management and production.
