His experience crosses both traditional film and stage. Alongside his acting career, Caleb is a keynote speaker, has represented South Africa in para-sport, and worked in the tech industry. 

Caleb's most recent creative project is a short film which reflects on his experience of surviving a great white shark attack, losing his right leg, and his subsequent relationship with the ocean.
