As an experienced freelance journalist in Cape Town, South Africa, I mainly focus on sustainable development in Africa. Topics include renewable energy, ethical investment, fair labour practices, eco transport, climate-wise agriculture, service delivery education, health, gender-based issues, and community development.  

Over the past years, I have written for over 70 different publications in and outside South Africa, including Forbes Africa, Forbes Africa Women, De Tijd (financial newspaper in Belgium), De Persdienst (Dutch news agency), African Green Elements, AfrElec Power Monitor,  Renewable Energy Monitor, Renewable Energy World, Earthworks Magazine, FastCompanySA, Intrepid Explorer, Business Day Earth, Business Day Empowerment, Leadership Magazine, MergerMarket, Energy Forecast, and International Finance.

Apart from writing for the media, I render a variety of services to local and international businesses, PR agencies, NGOs, research bodies and government agencies (think media communication, press releases, website content, report writing, case study writing, research, translation, photography, etc).
