Background

Summary

I studied Art Direction and Design but found Creative Writing was incredibly liberating.
Now I am channeling all my creativity through creative writing, news reporting and a little
bit of photography here and there. I love story-telling and travel writting.

Experience

Freelance Writer

Media24 (Pty) Ltd
– Present (9 months)Cape Town Area, South Africa

My primary role is to research online current affairs using well-known search engines and social media platforms for breaking news for the Myedit app. I rewrite large informative stories and strip them down to bitesized pieces for the on-the-go reader.

I started out as a writer at mynews24, a user generated section of News24 and kept putting up
well researched and thought out articles. I proofread, researched and edited my own work before putting it up online.

Blogger

Social Media Week Lagos
– Present (2 years)

My primary role was to write and research featured stories for the event's page.

The stories were more along the lines of social media, its impact on the average African, the music scene and pop culture in general.
The event was hosted in Nigeria, which was a first for the continent.

Senior Features Writer

Bambisana Media Consortium
(1 year 1 month)Cape Town Area, South Africa

I tackle the features that focus on changing social norms while profiling young professionals.
I edit the junior features writers as well as the freelance writers, contributors work and also
assist in art directing the layout of the features.

Please follow the link to the September issue I made my debut on:
