Professional profile

I am a dual South African-British citizen with seven years of experience in online media. For the last five years I have worked at CNN International, first as a digital features writer and now as an editor on the news desk.

I am currently based in France and work remotely for the London bureau. I edit the CNN International homepage across multiple platforms — desktop, mobile and the CNN app — and analyse data in real-time to ensure content is optimised for audiences. I work closely with the news desk and write and send engaging push notifications to CNN’s app users.

Prior to working as a homepage editor I was a key member of the features team. I wrote and edited multimedia content for the Travel, Technology, Environment, Africa and Style verticals and produced stories on everything from Everest’s mounting poop problem to the largest-ever female expedition to Antarctica.
