I am an independent journalist, editor and researcher based in Cape Town who has worked in-house on a variety of magazines as features, contributing or deputy editor – and I have stood in as editor on occasion too. This means I am well-versed in managing projects and editions from a concept level, through the commissioning, editing and production stages.
I am the Africa correspondent for the Swiss-based content publisher Primafila.
Publications I’ve written for have targeted very different audiences, both in South Africa and abroad. I have written for experts and for laypersons, and been deeply involved in creating content and magazines that resonate with readers. I have extensive researching, commissioning, and proofing experience, and have produced website and social media content for certain clients in the travel industry.
The scope of my work has been wide, ranging from current affairs, travel (which I have specialised in), profiles and health, to energy and climate change.
Titles and organisations I've writen for or worked on include: Colors magazine based in Treviso, Italy (deputy editor); Thisday (parliamentary correspondent, South Africa); High Life South Africa (contributing and acting editor); AFP, the former Virgin Atlantic inflight magazine Carlos (UK), Cityscapes, Business Day, The Weekender, The Media, Marie Claire, Mail & Guardian, Art South Africa, Horizons, Getaway, Wild, Elle Decoration, FM and more.
