About me

I am a Digital Storyteller; I write, design and create digital content. My inspiration comes from observations of the world, from technology, the environment, design, culture and society. I produce written content and editing services for a range of international businesses, as well as visual design, advice and support with online outreach. In addition, several international publications have published my interviews and articles about entrepreneurial businesses, technological innovations, eco-friendly trends, and culture-vulture excursions.
