I been a writer since my ghost story won first prize at the Eisteddford when I was ten years old! (I also wrote a weekly spy series for my junior school magazine, loosely modeled on James Bond 007!)
These days, I write about:
  • Travel (anywhere and everywhere; I speak five languages including Mandarin, French and Spanish)
  • Education (I was a high school and college teacher)
  • Economics, including export-import and entrepreneurship
  • Social issues, including development programmes
  • Environment, including Renewable Energy and Sustainability 
  • Communications, especially Story Work

I also conduct research for NGOs and transcribe live at conferences.

Copywriting acounts have included Tesco Financial Services, General Motors SA, ABSA Home Loans, British American Tobacco, as well as Transparency International, WWF-International and the National Bargaining Council for the Road Freight Industry.

My journalism work can be seen in the Weekend Argus, Sawubona, The Property Magazine, Mindshift, Energy Forecast, O Canada, The Ubyssey and Rant.

I teach Journalism and Business Writing courses at various institutions, as well as facilitate Strategy, Org Culture and Storytelling workshops.

In fact, I'm a globally recognized expert in Storyteling - I sit on the Board of Storytelling in Organisations and speak regularly on the topic.

Some of these stories are produced by my content company, ROTH <> into videos, explainer animations, podcasts and more.
