Hello. I am a Cape Town-based journalist, features writer and editor. I have over 13 years' publishing experience in the UK, Dubai and South Africa. 

I'm currently the communications and strategic information manager for the social justice organisation, Sonke Gender Justice. Prior to that I was the deputy editor of Marie Claire, South Africa.

I graduated from my MA in digital journalism at Goldsmiths, University of London in December 2013 having specialised in the production of long-form, interactive features. Warriors of the Off-Road is a piece I produced on my return to South Africa having followed 33 cyclists riding vintage, steel-frame road bikes on off-road terrain in the desertous Karoo. 

In my time as a print magazine journalist I've been the features editor on O, The Oprah Magazine, South Africa and special projects editor on Cosmopolitan, South Africa.

As a freelance journalist I've written extensively for both titles as well as Marie ClaireWomen's Health, Shape, Redbulletin.com and Telegraph.co.uk.
