George Davis was born in 1947, in Cape Town.There he grew up, schooled, and studied until leaving South Africa in the mid-70s, landing up in western Canada for 8 years. He studied plant ecology in Edmonton before moving to BC for a rustic spell amidst the Douglas Firs of the Rockies. He and his family returned to Cape Town in early 1983 where he embarked on a long spell as research scientist and nature conservation practitioner based at Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens.

On the death of his mother in 1997, he inherited a large number of historical family photographs which he has used as reference for compiling a set of memoirs. This set of stories he has self-published as a Life Righting writing project in his 71st year.
