Summary Profile

I've followed a rather unique career path resulting in an equally unique skills set and range of experience, all gathered in a relatively short space of time. Currently plying my trade at Classic FM.

I interned at Media24 many moons ago before moving to Gleason Publications, the boutique publishing house established by veteran respected financial journalist-cum-curmudgeon, David Gleason. 

The nature of the company allowed me to navigate the processes of publishing, from content conceptualization to creation, from design to distribution and brand cultivation. Simply put, I've gained a unique insider view and skills set of the entire publication production system and value chain. 

I've helped launch a national business broadsheet targeted at the "second economy" or SMME market. I've superintended the growth of Catalyst into the country's premiere private equity and VC focussed publication. And I've carved a niche as a legal and financial feature writer for both DealMakers and Without Prejudice. 

There have been forays into radio production, as a producer on the popular State of the Nation on Classic FM, and mainstream academic research for the University of Pretoria's Centre for Leadership flagship publication, Courageous Conversation, launched in 2010. 

Actively seeking new challenges every day!
