I am an urbanist-in-training in the Masters in City and Regional Planning programme at the University of Cape Town, as well as a contributor and a True Believer at futurecapetown.com. My interests are bicycle commuting, architecture and urban low-cost housing but I enjoy the challenge of writing outside of these areas, and am open to any urban-themed writing assignment you may have.

I am equipped with a Canon SX700 HS camera and tripod for everyday photography, but I frequently collaborate with a small number of young but highly skilled photographers, proofreaders and researchers. This means that I can offer a three-step process for conceptualising, then researching and writing, and finally proof-reading long and short-form journalism and features on urban themes.
