I am a professional business woman in my 30's, living in the bustling City of Johannesburg South Africa.
I have an accredited Honors Degree in Journalism, from Rhodes University South Africa (B.JOURN - 2002)
I run a marketing and media business called Room 206 ( specialising in target brand writing and broadcast media.
I am a lover of all things simply elegant and soulful. I am in a happy relationship with my boyfriend, Marco, spanning over 3 years. We both love to travel and have been fortunate enough in ticking off some of our Bucket List over the past few years. Some of our travels have included Egypt, Zanzibar, Denmark, Sweden and more often than not, taking great road trips to Cape Town and across the great African bushveld.
I enjoy connecting with people from all walks of life, and believe that everyone has a story to tell. Some of the best stories arrive in the simplest of conversations.
