Hobbo and his #BiogenJourney.


I'm working on an exciting campaign with Biogen SA where I'm documenting the life and transformation of Hobbo.

In September 2018 he was in the worst shape of his life. But he wanted to change that, and change it with a monumental goal.

Meet Hobbo below and follow his #BiogenJourney to participating in the Durban 70.3 half Ironman in June 2019.
