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.

It is available both digitally and physically. Click [Out Now] below or the Book tab above.
