I am a published author, professional writer and freelance creative. I am a born creative and although being able to apply my skills in various creative crafts, I developed a deep passion and love for writing. Creative writing is an extension of feelings and imagination and reading nourishes the mind. Writing is a powerful tool that transcends thoughts and feelings to the outer world. Writers are able to capture audiences and take them on journeys that extends far past reality.
I grew up in the 80s and developed a fondness of the eras free-spirited thinking, it was a time of glamour and exploration of person and personality. I was born and raised in South Africa but as a child I was either oblivious to shielded from the political instability of the period. I spent most of my childhood free to explore with friends and used every opportunity to develop my love for the creative arts. As a child I won competition for my artistic skills and spent most of my free-time with a pencil in my hand. In high school I developed a love for writing and poetry. I seldom shared my feelings and used writing as an escape. My love for writing grew and I wrote short stories and poetry to capture a sense of myself and my vivid imagination.
I have two post graduate degrees in the field of humanities and my heart is nestled neatly between the two psychology and communications. I also have a PMD from the Gordon Institute of Business Science and an international leadership coaching certificate from the University of Berkeley’s Business School of Haas.
After spending twenty years in corporate communications, I broke free from the chains of business to live more freely in the field that I am so passionate about. As a freelancer I now provide writing, editing and creative skills to clients all over the world. It feels magical to help clients free their thoughts and I’d love to help you too.
