About Me

I started off as a journalist back in 2002, and since then I have ventured into corporate communications and advertising. I bring a holistic perspective to the task at hand and this puts me in good stead to handle a multitude of tasks. From writing press releases to media invites, chairman and managing director statements for annual reports to copywriting campaigns for print, tv and outdoor installations, I have experienced it all. I'm 40 years old, and like they say, life does indeed begin at 40.
