I'm currently the deputy editor and lifestyle journalist for the award-winning luxury magazine, Private Edition (for The Publishing Partnership). My beat includes covering the latest news and developments in haute horlogerie (I regularly attend one of the world's top watch fairs in Geneva), travel, the arts and business. 

I'm also a contributor to the arts pages for the Financial Mail and the Cape Times, specialising in dance, musical theatre and drama.

With writing as the thread through my career in journalism, public relations, investor relations and publishing, I am able to work across a range of communication requirements. I'm one of the main contributors to the award-winning customer magazine Contact (for the City of Cape Town) and have a range of other clients across the corporate communication and investor relations spectrum.

I've worked previously as copy editor on W MagMarie Claire, FeminaEdgars Club, and Child Magazine, to name a few.
