Of Ghanaian/German heritage, raised in Lesotho and currently based in Johannesburg, South Africa, I consider myself the proverbial slashie, a professional ‘jack of all trades.’

Over the years, I have worn many hats including entrepreneur, writer, facilitator, content strategist, magazine editor, radio talk show host, project manager, events manager and speaker. At heart, I  am a storyteller.

I have recently added author to my many titles with the publishing of Listen To Your Footsteps, a collection of essays, thoughts and poems that are reflections on my journey to date and the lessons that I have learned, and continue to learn along the way. Who I am today was heavily shaped by my father, who raised me, by my steps and missteps in work, relationships and life, and by my children.

How important are photographs today?

How important are photographs today?

Remember the days when we used to take photographs with cameras that used film roll? You would take your pictures without knowing how they would turn out, take the film to a photography shop and then wait about two weeks to pick up your photos. The closest we got to...

Strengths versus weakness. Where’s your attention?

Strengths versus weakness. Where’s your attention?
