What do i do? 



Digital strategy + Start-Ups.


Medium length version

My specialisation lies in running global change campaigns for international brands and companies. I manage and oversee strategy, implementation and execution of all campaign aspects.

My nagging desire to build and learn manifests through side-projects and start-ups.

I teach digital media strategy at universities, ad agencies and corporates. 



Go-for-gold version

I'm a digital campaigning one-stop-shop who handles strategy, web design, graphic design, social media strat & execution, copy writing and paid search.

I'm co-founder of Jolp, an audio learning platform for girls aged 6- 16, with a strong focus on STEM-content. Jolp has a mobile app (both iOS + Android), but the main focus is on girls who don't have access to education (poverty, refugees, war, etc). Our mission is to create a Joy Of Learning through our audio pod, that is pre-loaded with audio content that inspires curiosity, and a wonder for the world. 

When not connecting brands to change, I help companies build capacity through learning. I've developed Africa’s first graduate digital quotient course which launched at Stellenbosch Business School in 2015. I have taught at South Africa's top business schools, universities and agencies. Go to my teaching page to see my reviews.



The best social media is where it happens. That's probably not at your desk.
