Interests: Citizenship, Community / Customary Land Rights, Criminal Justice, Generalist Legal Services
I am a Johannesburg-based program officer for the CS Mott Foundation, responsible for grantmaking the Access to Justice program area. I have a particular interest in scaling primary legal services and promoting local activism for people who might be considered marginalized. I serve on the Board of the Social Change Assistance Trust, which is an intermediary grantmaker for small community-based justice organizations in South Africa. Before joining Mott, I worked at the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime, the Open Society Foundation for South Africa, and the South African Parliament, among others. I have a bachelor's degree in law, and a master’s degree in international criminal and human rights law from the University of the Western Cape and during 2012 was chosen by the Mail & Guardian as one of the top 200 Young South Africans in the category for civil society.
