Hellurrr!

It’s wonderful to have you here.

(Setting aside an already cold, half-filled mug of green tea)

Can you tell that I love writing? This blog – Be Whole, is jam-packed with articles, features, and reviews that I’ve written.

I’ve spent late nights and early mornings, fingering away at my keyboard to publish some of the posts that you’ll read here.

It’s not hard work at all, though.

Sometimes, I find myself spending a full-day writing – having breakfast for lunch and some green tea to replenish.

Sometimes I can hear my stomach growling, and then I think, “okay, let’s just finish this paragraph and then I’ll take a break.” But I don’t. I won’t stop writing when ideas are flowing.  Because there are days my friend, when they don’t.

I keep three notebooks. One for work, one to journal, and one for just in case an idea pops into my head and my phone happens to have died – it’s happened.

This is what I look like:

Projects

Industry experience with premium South African brands has equipped me with the know-how to produce convincing content.  I’m well acquainted with strict deadlines, and can alternate between compiling technical, creative, long-form or short form copy according to briefs. These are some of the brands I have written copy for, below:
