Dr Pierce has a passion for travel and has travelled extensively believing that an appreciation of culture and understanding of diversity sculpts a person and teaches one acceptance, tolerance and self-love.

When not at work Dr Pierce may be found oil painting, on nature expeditions or enjoying a chicken basil pesto with friends. His ultimate escape and place of relaxation is the Klein Karoo.
