Profile

I write. I blog. Sometimes I give talks on minimalism.

I'm detail driven, old school about the English language and I know what a deadline is. I have an excellent sense of humour and an on-again-off-again relationship with coffee, neither of which should (fingers crossed) affect my spelling or proper use of grammar and punctuation.

Current employment

Freelance Writer & Blogger
Self-Employed
Present - Cape Town
I spend my days writing top-quality articles that are engaging, helpful and easy to read. (I had to find something to occupy my time now that I’m no longer drinking coffee.) My clients fall mainly in the lifestyle, health and wellness sectors. I'll admit to the occasional foray into marketing and PR, but I draw the line at anything overtly business-y. I'm simply not capable of writing with a corset on. I have been published in Oprah Magazine (SA) and have contributed to a number of popular blogs as well, including Becoming Minimalist, The Write Life, Care2.com, The Penny Hoarder and Honey Colony. I’m also the content half of the duo behind Mostly Mindful, a blog that makes minimalism more-ish. Here I write mainly about the benefits of a life with less stuff, eating a plant-based diet and living sustainably in the city.
