During my corporate career, I have worked as a journalist and editor of business-to-business publications since 1995. My areas of expertise include: hospitality, tourism, travel, food, beverages, chefs, hotels, restaurants, management, people, retail, business, environment, corporate social responsibility, and public relations.
Having worked for RamsayMedia (later bought out by Caxton) as Gauteng editor and later editor of Hotel & Restaurant for 15 years, Supermarket & Retailer for four years prior to that, as well as a range of hospitality, food and food science publications that were part of then-named Times Media, I have developed a great love of research-based, interview-driven writing that is aimed at specific audiences and also appeals to anyone with an interest in business.
It has been a great privilege and pleasure to be a conduit of accurate and educational information to target audiences about businesses across various industries and those who make them successful. I have also worked closely with a number of associations and government in the course of my career.
As an independent writer, editor and journalist my journey regularly takes me into new and exciting fields of expertise.
My studies include a BA, majoring in Communications and English, and a BA Hons in English, both from UNISA.
