Research and script writing for television

There is nothing more exhilarating to me than seeing my words come to life on screen. Some of the key ingredients that I add to each script are thorough research, a personal connection to the story, and a good understanding of the tone of the show and personalities who will be delivering my lines.

My experience is in scripted reality shows so far, but I would welcome the challenge of working in documentary, drama and live production as well. I have written for Disney’s I Love Violetta (2015, produced by Urban Brew), NBC’s How Do I Look? South Africa Season 1 and 2 (2017 and 2018, produced by Urban Brew and Black and White Productions respectively).

I’m keen to add value to your production. Let the storytelling journey begin.



Content creation for social media

Social media – love it or hate it, it’s here to stay and along with having a website, it’s become a non-negotiable for any business operating in the 21st century. But it’s no longer enough just to have an online presence – you need powerful copy to cut out the clutter and deliver your value-adding message to your audience.

To date, I’ve created engaging and effective web and social content for clients in fashion, youth leadership, early childhood development, cycling, reputation management, app development, automotive industries, geotechnics, health and beauty.

I’m here to perfect your next post. Let me help you.
