About Me:


I am a writer, television/film director and editor, as well as model.

I have a never-ending interest and curiosity in the world and all things that occur within it, politically, socially and economically.

I cover any and all topics, whether it be sensitive and hard-hitting, or light-hearted comedic relief. I will write anything that will make you think differently about certain things, as my goal in life is to inspire and educate as many minds as possible.

Enjoy my articles, and feel free to leave me comments and thoughts on your opinions too.

Carl Mischke: The 9th victim in the chain of “gay serial killings”. First of all, this title is not only ambiguous, but also pretty demeaning.

Sunday + depression = sundaypression – a term I have coined to describe the ominous feeling of dread on the evening prior to yet another long, torturous week, after but 2 days off out of 7.

It came to my attention shortly after her death, that celebration is in fact taking place by many, from rioters in England to our beloved ANC.

If there is one thing that I will never understand, it is how hunting can be called a “sport”.

Locking yourself inside like an inmate at a high security prison cannot actually be called living.

When I was in high school, there were many things I did not agree with – certain rules that I thought were too much to ask, too much to expect - things that were just plain unfair

Amongst the many debit orders that send us into bankruptcy on a monthly basis, is medical aid (or health insurance).
