Writer / Producer offering creative writing, concept development and project management tuition.

Methodology

I believe we all learn in different ways. My job is to structure the course with the learner's personality, abilities and goals in mind. Whether you're a retired executive wanting to write a screenplay or an inquisitive observer who'd like to get a better understanding of the ever-changing entertainment landscape, I'll work with you to ensure you get the most from this learning experience.

Background

I have taught and mentored students since 1997. I've developed course curricula and lectured various degree and post-graduate classes at universities and private colleges. I have worked in the production, content creation and digital departments of TV shows ranging from Louise Smit's 'Kideo' to Endemol's 'Big Brother'. I have developed, created and produced media, marketing and entertainment projects for numerous corporate clients, including SA Tourism, SAB, BP, SADC, Eskom and Liberty Life.
I co-wrote and co-developed the feature film 'Kalushi – The Story of Solomon Mahlangu'
((concealed information) which received nationwide cinema release in 2017
and won numerous local and international awards. I collaborated on 'Mapungubwe: Echoes in the
Valley' ((concealed information) the three-part documentary series
screened on SABC3 in 2017.
