About

 

Born and raised in South Africa, I finished my degree in Creative Brand Communications at Vega School of Branding. After school, I travelled around Europe for a year before entering the world of advertising.

I've had the opportunity to work on brands like: Coke Zero, Motorola, American Express, T-Mobile, Stella Artois, Virgin Voyages, E*Trade, Nationwide Insurance, Skoda, the UN, UNESCO Lenovo, IBM and Coca-Cola.

I successfully pitched clients such as Coca-Cola, Wrangler, Lenovo & Jaegermeister.

I currently live in New York and work at Mother.
