About me

I am a passionate creative who makes a living doing the thing that I love ... creating stuff. As monikers go I am a Catalyst type personality, a WOW person who enjoy challenges and opportunities to grow and learn. I thrive on new ideas and opportunities and love beautiful, clever things and ideas and ... people! In my one beautiful life I have 2 boys, 2 rescue dogs, an imaginary Ginger cat (boys wish list), an amazing partner, a vibrant garden and 5 Apple macs! One could sayI am a balanced human being, being human and sometimes a bit more ...

I studied graphic design at Durban Tech before mac's were cool and have had the privilege of working with amazing companies both here in South Africa and abroad in the UK.I have largely followed design with a few side journeys into architecture, styling, advertising and brand coaching. I have been the newbie coffee-maker cut-&-stick chick, the studio manager, the creative head and a group head team leader. I am comfortable leading a team as well as being a team player (cue good coffee-making skills).

I am an avid mountain biker who loves sublime single track and everything in-between. I find one can obtain great joy and clarity behind bars; and am not adverse to going the extra mile ... behind the computer on paper and even on foot. I am a non-profit artist who paints anything, from renovated old furniture, walls, floors and sometimes even canvases.I am also a Great Life coach and an Advanced Reiki healer and ... a Mindful eating coach.
