A trip through Africa inspired travel pieces that were published in the travel supplement of the Weekend Argus.I have also been published in Africa Geographic, Femina, Leisure Wheels, Bankmed, Your Baby & Toddler, Experience Overberg Magazine, Responsible Traveller.


Varied interests in travel, the environment, psychology, nutrition and women's interest. I utilise my hobby of photography to enhance my work where necessary. I am always looking for a good story.


I worked full time (2009 to 2014) for a shark cage diving company (Marine Dynamics) and a whale watching company (Dyer Island Cruises) in Gansbaai. I was operations manager of their Dyer Island Conservation Trust for three years, writing content for newspapers, magazines (Hermanus Times, Gansbaai Courant, Submerge, Splash, Whale Talk and more) and doing social media. I have handled radio and film interviews in the course of this position as well as done much public speaking.  I enjoy writing content for websites with a focus on SEO and can also assist with social media marketing. I continue to freelance for the above organisations and still handle media and public relations.
