I have over 20 years of experience as a journalist. I obtained my reporting experience mainly at Business Report and wire service I-Net Bridge both based in Johannesburg. From August 2006 to August 2009, I generated numerous exclusive mining and resources stories for Business Report, including well over 100 front-page leads.

I spent five years as Business Report’s Online Editor, where I significantly grew the website readership and established leading social media positions for the publication.

I then spent over a year as Business Report’s Night News Editor, where I brought a steady hand to the management of my areas of responsibility.

From February 2016 to July 2019, I was City Press Business Editor, where I significantly improved the business coverage. While I was in the position, the staff of the business section won two awards.

Since July 2019, I have been a freelance journalist.

I have a four-year journalism degree from Rhodes University, with journalism and economics as majors, as well as a University of South Africa accounting science commerce degree, which covered accounting, auditing, tax, commercial law and management.
