Reducing my unique skill sets to writing is challenging when these skill sets are unconventional and require personal interaction to be fully appreciated. Be that as it may, I'm an attorney and strategist who enjoys writing immeasurably.
I joined the ranks of DLA Cliffe Dekker Hofmeyr as a candidate attorney, where I grew professionally and despite being offered retention, I turned it down to pursue a tremendous opportunity at ProBono.Org as their head of strategy. It was there that I learned I needed an opportunity to reflect on the direction in which I wish to take my career. As a result, I resigned, jumped on a train and began travelling around South Africa.

I have learned that I would like to re-enter the legal arena in the fields of media, entertainment and corporate dispute resolution. My experience in those fields is vast and I believe I can assist in growth through my methods of learning while I teach and challenging myself to increase expectations and then meet them.
