I'm a freelance writer and editor with 10+ years of experience. I have created or tweaked content for a variety of clients and publications (both online and print) over the years – covering everything from tourism in Cape Town to travel in Japan, financial software and other corporate subjects, the technicalities of roofing, medical conditions and more. I've also taught English (at a Japanese high school and university) and Journalism (at Rhodes University), manage(d) social media platforms and done various other bits and pieces. Currently I focus on budget Tokyo travel content, with slices of health and technology writing on the side. I'm interested in getting more involved in sustainability and environmental content.
I'm also a qualified risk communication consultant, with expertise in the area of nuclear reporting.
I have a Master of Arts in Communication (cum laude) from Unisa, a BA Honours in Media Theory and Practice from UCT, and a BA in Media and Law from the same alma mater.
