My writing portfolio is a work in progress as I nurture my craft and expand into new directions.

I’ve done corporate writing for websites, reports and videos for the past 19 years, but have now started writing journalistic features and more creative pieces.

My studies in journalism during 2018 taught me the theory of good writing, honed my skills and gave me the confidence to explore.
