About me

I was born in South Africa and grew up on a citrus farm in the Eastern Cape. At university I pursued my love of art and design, majoring in Stained and Kiln-formed glass. I then moved to Johannesburg where I started my career working with start-ups, non-profits and art production teams on a range of projects, largely in a creative project management capacity. I relocated to London just over three years ago and joined the Daily Mail as the lead layout planner, continuing in a ‘creative’ PM role whilst gaining exposure to an exciting industry and fast-paced corporate environment. I am now keen to pursue a new challenge and the opportunity to continue learning, collaborating and helping those around me.
