Experience

My appreciation for writing began as a teenager. I attended an arts school in Pretoria which mean’t that I had a stage on which to live out my teenage angst, and also mingle with creative thinkers.

After school I moved south in pursuit of a career in performance and graduated with a diploma from the Cape Academy of Performing Arts in 2012. I was a freelance performer for three years before realising that what I really wanted was to write. I attended City Varsity in 2016, and graduated with a Higher Certificate in Journalism and Media Studies.

I have also been involved with the radio industry as a professional voice over artist (Tongue Twisters) as well as presenting a Radio program (Zone radio). My writing has been published in Digital Soul (online publication) as well as Fancourt magazine.

I see media as a platform to build bridges and give much needed perspective. I enjoy culture, travel and humanitarian projects and am hoping that SAFREA will assist in refining my skills and advise me on how to best approach the industry as a freelance professional. I would really like to learn more about editing, copywriting, social media management and business writing where possible.
