I am a dynamic writer with more than 15 years experience in several fields of media and education. My skill set ranges from writing for newspapers and magazines to press relations for a voluntary health agency, to teaching and training, and into photography and design/pagination. I am a believer in the importance of the written word, be it in print or online, and know the depth of understanding a single picture can bring to a good story. As human beings, we are connected by story and have held the storyteller in high esteem from our prehistory though today. As a storyteller, journalist and media relations professional I can bring the dynamic that connects you to your audience in any situation, enabling your message to be told in the way that best fits your organization.
