He is a professional choreographer, dancer and actor who most recently worked with Johnny Clegg on his final journey tour. One of the pieces he is most proud about having choreographed is a dance showpiece for the 2010 FIFA Soccer World Cup closing ceremony. 

When he isn’t on tour or performing, Patric enjoys going out with friends for a few drinks or watching soccer. He describes himself as a “cool and really fun yet hardworking and ambitious guy.”

Patric says he decided to sign up for Married At First Sight SA because he has been struggling to find the right lady, who is also ready for commitment.

When he isn’t hard at work as a Sales Manager he enjoys training, trail running and spending time with his family and friends. He also enjoys the occasional relaxed weekend in and catches up on TV viewing. 

Hennie prides himself in what he has accomplished in his life and says he is ready to share his life and grow with someone special by his side. He quips, “I signed up for Married At First Sight SA because getting married is a major milestone for me and I believe that with the help of the experts and the process it might be one of the best modern ways of finding a life partner.”
