Integrity. Treat people as you'd like to be treated. Talk less, more action.

2016 sees me taking the plunge and starting my own business called Venue Hunter. Venue Hunter finds and connects people to alternative venues in RSA. Soon to be launched to the public.

I spent the last 5 years project managing & researching in the social innovation realm exploring different ways of reducing crime in the Western Cape with The Safety Lab; urban development & public space activation projects with Cape Town Partnership and the CCID.

I’m passionate about people-centric public spaces that are open, accessible, safe and inspirational to everyone in Cape Town – both day and night.

My academic background is a combination of science and design having completed a Masters in Landscape Architecture after a BSc in Environmental Sciences and Archaeology.
