Who I am
I am an author, journalist and editor – a writer-at-large, if you will – based in Johannesburg, South Africa. I have a B.Journ from Rhodes and a BA (Hons) in Sociolinguistics from UNISA, and my roots are very much in journalism, but I have written and edited in a number of genres, both fiction and non-fiction, and worked in the media, commercial and academic spheres.
I believe good writing is an essential life skill – after all, when you consider how many e-mails you write in a day, or presentations and reports you have to produce, or even something as simple as the texts and tweets you send, most of us do an awful lot of writing. Yet no-one teaches us the essential skills that help us to write with clout.
In addition, my background in the traditional media means that I have excellent content curation skills: producing communication that is interesting and relevant for its audience is both a strength and a passion.
So you have a few options.
1. Hire me to write for you – I can turn my hand to any form of writing.
2. Allow me to edit what you’ve written and turn it into something that’s a pleasure to read.
3. Let me teach you how to write better.
4. Bring me in to consult, co-ordinate and collaborate with your existing writers.
