Writer & editor

Location icon South Africa

I am a high calibre business journalist, general writer and editor. I have a demonstrated track record of learning, adapting and excelling quickly. I'm motivated and committed to developing projects’ full potential and to delivering outstanding results. Creative and insightful, I'm a great team player and collaborationist, but also self-proficient. I work very well under pressure, never losing eye for detail or the ability to find solutions in order to deliver beyond expectation.

I am highly effective in my time management, which means I'm not only able to juggle multiple tasks, but I'm able to deliver them in the required time-frame. Nevertheless, if a project requires time and attention beyond usual business hours I'm prepared to put in the time.
