My public relations and marketing roots are firmly set in music having worked with digital labels, music licensing, publishing, booking global talent, managing tours, clubs, and venues. Once I left the music business, and over the space of eight years, I built a boutique communications agency based in Cape Town, South Africa. At the end of 2015, I moved on from Inrichmint Media as founder and GM and I committed myself to the life of a remote freelance professional, specialising in bespoke marketing and public relations. I am currently based in Johannesburg with clients in the United Kingdom, Dubai, and South Africa. I have a strong skill set which includes project management, CRM, strategy, copywriting, SEO, press releases, events management, media liaison, advertising, blogging, influencer campaigns, newsletters & mailing list management, social, and content management.

With my BTL & ATL experience, I am fully hands-on when rolling out marketing & PR campaigns. My experience includes writing strategy and marketing plans, international and local events management, press releases and media liaison, broadcast & print advertising, music licensing, WordPress websites, influencer campaigns, newsletters and email journeys, PPC advertising, media buying, database management, and lead generation, customer relationship management, social media management, competition and content management. I’ve built a career out of creative thinking, conceptualising ideas, and bringing those big ideas to life, measuring results, and engaging with both businesses and consumers around the world.
I’ve been incredibly fortunate to have worked with some of South Africa and the world’s biggest brands and agencies. I have worked hard over the years, done what it takes, and with every fibre of my being, I went for it. It has taken dedication and willingness to learn. I have had to be flexible and open to constructive feedback. One needs to give it all to stay on top of your game and win. Winning is when the result exceeds expectation. I’ve put the needs of my client first in the process of delivering what I have promised. It paid off.
I offer a range of marketing, digital, public relations, advertising, copywriting, and eventing services. I consult with clients on-site or remotely. My rates generally scale depending on the number of hours dedicated to a project, retainer, or campaign. A quote is tailored upon receiving a brief from the client with all the relevant information. The more detail initially provided the better. Take the time to consider your financial position and establish what you are able to commit to. Budget is always a good place to start.
My writing experience includes copywriting, website content, press releases, Mailchimp mailers and email journeys, social content, SEO blogs, editing, reports, strategies, plans & research. I write & research both for myself & for clients on a range of subjects including travel & tourism, home & leisure, IT & tech, music & entertainment, food & hospitality, environmental, self-help & motivation, fashion & design, charity & community, parenting & education, and (of course) marketing & PR. The Freer Times is my monthly mailer focused on marketing, digital, and PR. In addition, I am the founder & editor of Inpress Magazine, a passion project which has developed into an online publication with a combined social audience & subscribed readership of over 20,000. There is the Taste Experiences Project under Inpress Magazine with The Vintage Kitchen for practical food tips and My CannaKitchen linked to Head Industries.
