I am a creative and resourceful journalist with extensive experience in both print and online media. Most recently, I filled the position of news editor for Grazia, a weekly celebrity news and fashion magazine. Before this, I was employed as managing editor for a collection of websites owned and run by Kagiso New Media, primarily the radio station websites of Jacaranda and East Coast Radio. I’ve also worked in financial journalism as the online editor and student supplement magazine editor for the Financial Mail. During my time at Flow Communications, I created website copy, press releases and blogs, as well as running social media campaigns on Twitter and Facebook, editing simple HTML, writing news articles and SEO copy.

I currently work as a full-time freelance journalist, copy editor, blogger and photographer for a number of print and online publications, as well as copywriting and editing behind the scenes for a few corporates.

I enjoy writing on a variety of topics but have a particular passion for people, conservation, entrepreneurship, design, urban development, technology and travel, and have focused my career on pursuing these content types. I work well within a deadline-driven environment and have strong sub-editing skills.
