I am a story-teller. I love life, people and their stories. I am fascinated by human nature. I love exploring, finding the unexpected in daily existence and the unknown secrets of what makes life possible. I love travelling. I love meeting and talking to new people because, with each encounter, a world of possibilities opens up. I became a journalist because I was curious, fascinated by people. I love to listen to people, to ask questions, and to get the best possible story out of any circumstance. My journey into broadcast journalism began when I was five listening to Radio Plays and Dramas broadcast on Radio Zulu (Ukhozifm today). Listening to the Radio was the highlight of our evenings and it turned our small Orlando home into a living theatre. My experience and knowledge is rooted in Broadcast Journalism. My career in the sector spans more than 13 years working as a Radio and TV journalist, a radio news reader, anchor, producer, investigative journalist, a war correspondent, human rights and constitutional court reporter. I love feature-story-telling. I’m a creative at heart and happiest when I am creating in a creative environment, otherwise known as the field. I have written, directed and produced a play called LINDIWE! A true story based on lies – a play about news and identity politics.  The wide range of experience in reporting has given me the kind of versatility that enables me to tackle any subject from palaeoanthropology to pop music or technology. I am also well-travelled having been on work assignments in China, Spain, the Middle East, North America, Uganda, Kenya, Ghana, Mozambique and Senegal
among others. I am always grateful and appreciate opportunities to tell stories, in a creative and impactful way. To be the vehicle through which others can find and develop their own voice.  I am curiously passionate about life. These are my original words except where expressly noted otherwise
