I began work in the Brand/ Reputation Management, Marketing & Communication arena in late 1994 and have lived and worked in Canada, USA and France. I have travelled to several other countries for work and pleasure. I established DonValley in 2006, after leaving a previously agency in which I was one of three partners. Writing has been a hobby and passion of mine from childhood. I have contributed many Op-Ed articles for the Cape Times, Cape Argus (some of which were syndicated to the Star newspaper in Johannesburg) over the last few years. I have also written regular columns for BBQ Business magazine and African Entrepreneur. I'm currently a freelance columnist for Fin24.Com. In addition, I have edited French copy for The Islander - Air Mauritius' inflight magazine and for the Limpopo Business & Tourism Guide.
