Whether it's online copy for your business/product, content writing for your digital media platform, script writing, proposal drafting, heck, even cutting up magazine letters for your ransom letters - i'm your writer.

My writing experience is wide and varied - I completed a degree in Journalism and Media Studies/English Language and Linguistics at Rhodes University where my love and deep passion for writing was born and tenderly bred.

My background includes online news writing and Newsroom management for an Arts publication | content writing and online managing for a market research and tech start - up | content producing, video editing and shoot directing for TV for a production company | Facilitating workshops around effecting business writing skills and effective report writing |

All of the above experiences challenged me, helped me finesse a great work ethic and made me the strong, creative and spirited writer that I am today.

10 things you need to know about the Eastern Star Press Gallery

It's actually in Grahamstown. Turns out Grahamstown is not the isolated, ghost-lurking vacuum we once thought it was. Hidden (and simultaneously in clear view) on Anglo-American Street is The Eastern Star Gallery.
