This month we’re featuring Vanessa Clark, a Cape Town-based freelance journalist, copywriter and editor. Vanessa specialises in corporate journalism, B2B and technology writing. In her own words:

"My favourite subject is found where digital technology intersects with real people to make something awesome happen. This could be a new way for small companies to market themselves more effectively without breaking the bank, or it could be a better way for people to send money home using mobile technology. If it involves innovation coming out of Africa, I am usually hooked. Because I have spent the bulk of my career in the tech industry, I am adept at translating geek speak into something interesting and accessible."
