I was born in South Africa on a Christmas day and my mum still says I was her best Christmas present ever. In 2011 my family and I immigrated to Australia and made Brisbane our home.
I’m a Brand Ambassador, New Media Specialist, Speaker, Trainer and Mentor. I am fascinated by Social Media and the impact it has on people and industries. I write articles as a contributor to The Next Web and Business 2 Community on influencer marketing, technology and social media.
I am intrigued by bubbles, a lover of fine wines and have recently discovered the goodness of proper coffee!
When I’m not doing Social Media Marketing, Training, Mentoring, or Consulting you will find me playing on my Playstation, cooking up a storm in the kitchen or out and about doing my part to save our planet.
Effective Social Media marketing is an often overlooked and undervalued aspect of modern business strategy, yet sometimes it makes the difference between a growing business and a shrinking one.
I work to identify opportunities for businesses and personal brands to get their name in front of the public’s eye and to cultivate the kind of relationships with customers and clients that would have been impossible a generation ago. The end result of this is that organizations who previously felt that Social Media was either a mystery or that it was not entirely necessary, suddenly understand what Social Media is and how it can dramatically change the face of marketing.
I host training sessions and Social Media related events in our local community and my goal is to expand this to an online course so anyone and everyone can take part and benefit from the knowledge I share.

In a word: LOVE. I love my life being involved in this always changing world of Social Media because it brings me together with some of the most talented and ambitious people in multiple industries and all walks of life.
I have always dreamed big, strived for excellence and pushed myself to be better than before. I care deeply about nature and have often found inspiration in it. Have you ever felt an unending drive towards a goal? Well, that’s what drives me in Social Media, the insatiable need to discover and push the boundaries of online interactions.
