I’ve written about travel, leisure, food, drinks, television, film, music, theatre, art, books, and more. As a journalist and blogger, I’ve profiled over a hundred inspiring individuals so far: from Grammy-winning musicians and top entertainment stars, to celebrated fashion designers and the world’s best chefs. I also publish a weekly Cape Town Travel Guide podcast that gives readers access to the best new experiences from one of the greatest cities in the world.
ARTS AND ENTERTAINMENT:
I studied piano for eight years in school and four years in university, graduating with distinctions from the South African College of Music and in my final UNISA exam. I won a Silver Award (Special Merit for Online Innovation) at South Africa’s Arts Journalist of the Year in 2014. I also served a six-year term as a judge for the Fleur du Cap Theatre Awards and have seen over 800 theatre and concert performances since beginning my journalism career.
FOOD AND DRINKS:
I was one of the first winners of Eat Out’s review of the month competition in 2014 and received a distinction (84%) for my Cape Wine Ambassador course from the Topaz Wine Company in 2015. I now review restaurants across the country and publish a monthly video round-up that features all the best new drinks from South Africa and beyond.
TRAVEL AND EVENTS:
I received a distinction for my Diploma in Photography from the Shaw Academy in 2015 and won the annual IFWTWA Excellence in Journalism Award in 2017. I currently work with destination marketers, global airlines, hospitality providers, tourism boards, and travel conferences to promote locations and experiences around the world.
