Please to meet you!

As a fairly seasoned and respected freelance journalist in South Africa it feels: like yesterday: seeing my byline in print for the very first time. This milestone happened sometime in the mid-1990s, when I was a third-year journalism student doing my first internship.

Many things have changed since then. No longer am I a nervous newspaper intern in The Netherlands, but an experienced writer and journalist in Cape Town. 

Freelance in South Africa 

What has not changed, is my passion for writing relevant, balanced, well-written  content. I currently work for newspapers, magazines, private companies, NGOs, research bodies, and other clients around the world. 

Whilst I consider myself an all-round freelance writer in Cape Town, I tend to focus on business & finance, sustainable development (anything related to the Sustainable Development Goals), green energy, humanitarian issues, and technology.

Me in a nutshell

As a seasoned, professional deadline-driven freelance journalist in Cape Town, I am serving a broad spectrum of clients. These include  newspapers and magazines in South Africa, the UK and Asia as well as a number of companies, NGOs, PR agencies, social enterprises and start-ups. 

Sustainable development

Whilst I am capable of writing about anything, my work mainly revolves around sustainable development in Africa (read: Sustainable Development Goals), technology, African business, and energy. I also cover politics and breaking news. My focus area is sub-Saharan Africa.

Corporates, PR agencies & NGOs

Besides writing for magazines, newspapers, and other media outlets help non-media organisations (and their clients) to tell their stories. I do so by producing compelling, relevant, well-written content and rendering other services. These include press release writing, social media, photography, case study & report writing, blogs,  research, translating, newsletters, and conference reporting. Sustainable development plays the lead role
