I started my professional career as a journalist. It’s something that I wanted to do from when I was a little kid. Back then I wanted to be a war correspondent but those dreams disappeared somewhere along the way.
I’ve worked for some of the top media companies and brands in the country including 702 talk radio, Financial Mail and Mail&Guardian but unfortunately my passion for writing as a career left me early on.
My father will be happy to know that his money wasn’t all wasted and I’m finally doing something constructive with my journalism degree. A few months back I met Jason Brown, the editor of Men’s Health magazine. Jason is doing a cracking job at MH and realised that his readers were looking for local business content.
That’s where I come in.
Hopefully this column will be the first of many, but even if it isn’t, it’s good to have been published.
