I have extensive and diverse experience as a writer, including several years as a corporate writer for a national company, and also as a freelance writer for a large international company, responsible for many of its internal communications.
As a highly experienced writer in diverse fields, I am accurate, creative and flexible to ensure that I meet my briefs. I am an accomplished writer with excellent language skills and have proven my ability over and over again. I have a passion for the fields of health, nutrition, mental well-being and nature conservation.
I thrive in a digital world. I like to reimagine why, how and where digital communication can change our world. If you need a writer, content creator or digital manager who wants to do things differently, contact me.
I am a Cape Town based writer and editor.
I make the unimaginable believable. The power of language to inform identity is an idea that I love. I revel in the fact that my job is about creating and telling a story, not simply matching good words together.
I love to write, you see. But what I really look for is to make a difference through my work.
As a creative, I have a passion for bringing things to life. Even if I’m editing an academic paper, it brings back that nostalgic feeling you have as a kid. When you believed with everything you were that the box lying across the room was actually a creature you needed to slay. Or when you looked at the big tree in your garden and saw only a castle-wall that needed climbing. It’s about making the unimaginable believable. The notion hardly even makes sense, yet it’s why I write.?

*I reach wallets too, but that’s just a happy side effect.
It is my job to annihilate bad grammar, provide copy and content for various platforms, review albums, interview musicians, research back routes for tourists and work as a ghostwriter for those who need to tell their human stories in words. I can be found researching antique pieces during the day or playing music journalist at night. Mostly though, you can find me on my official blog and we can chat about how I can create content that works for you or your business.
