About

I am a self-motivated, passionate journalist and media specialist. After graduating from Rhodes University in 2000, I have worked as a journalist for almost 17 years. In this time, I developed skills as a field journalist, producer, writer, media strategist and news editor. I also have a business finance and broadcast management qualifications which allow me to manage a team of journalists within the News unit.

In 2016, as the Executive producer for SAfm Current Affairs at SABC News, I alongside seven of my colleagues played a key role in initially challenging the SABC over management’s editorial dictate that violent protests must not be covered in TV news broadcasts. We stood our ground and submitted our concerns to Parliament which resulted in the first ever inquiry into the SABC by the Portfolio Committee on Communications.

My love for family and country has been the greatest motivator in my life.
