My name is Marisa Louw (nee Van Aswegen) but I am mostly known as 'eM'. I am an independent marketing professional from Johannesburg, South Africa. I have 45 years' life experience of which 24 years have been spent in the marketing industry - 12 years in corporate marketing, 4 years at a marketing agency, and the past 8 years as an entrepreneur. I specialise in publicity (PR or public relations), and content creation (writing), social media (strategies and management), and campaign/project management.
In addition, I am also well versed in performing arts with 38 years' stage experience as a singer. I have experience as a singer, actress, scriptwriter, artist manager, stage manager, production manager, and producer.
Furthermore, my hobbies include make-up artistry (specialising in stage make-up), photography, videography, website design, playing PC games, custom-building of computers, and specimen carp angling.
