Writing

I cut my teeth as a journalist working for the South African Press Association in Johannesburg in 1996.  I was the editor of the South African indie youth culture publication SL magazine between 2004 and 2007. In 2006 together with the publisher I launched HYPE :  the first hip hop magazine in South Africa.

Since then I have written for newspapers and magazines including Mail & Guardian, National Geographic Traveller, Marie Claire, ELLE and TimeOut, amongst others.
