I am currently contracted to ShowMax.com, Naspers’ answer to Netflix, to head up its content marketing initiatives.

Previously, I was employed by New Media Publishing in Cape Town as the senior editor on the Vodacom account. I was involved in a number of different content marketing projects, including editor of Vodacom now! – a technology website.

In my own time, I am editor and founder of Veggie Bunch – a community-driven vegetarian lifestyle website.

On the photography front, I have contributed images to a number of books, been published in magazines and newspapers and have worked as a photographer at weddings and various events.

Things I do after work
When I am not working I enjoy getting out and exploring the natural beauty that South Africa has to offer. As clichéd as it sounds, I love camping, hiking, running and simply relaxing while staring out across a lovely view. While I admit that I don’t always get the balance right between work and leisure, I try to squeeze in personal time as often as possible.

I have an insatiable appetite for books and if I don’t have a novel on hand I immediately feel like there’s something missing in my life.
