Writing

I cut my teeth as a journalist working for the South African Press Association in Johannesburg in 1996. During my bachelor’s studies in Journalism at Rhodes University I worked as a stringer for a variety of news agencies.

Since then I have written for newspapers and magazines (Elle, FHM, T3) before becoming the editor of youth culture title SL magazine in 2004. A few years later I became the associate publisher.  In 2006  together with the publisher I launched HYPE  magazine:  the first hip hop title in South Africa.
