About Me

Artist, Thinker, Creative Doer

I like to write, but I also dabble in art direction

For as long as I can remember, writing has been a passion of mine. I can't put a date to the "aha" moment - might have been when the story I wrote about 'My Favourite Food' earned me a pat on the head from my teacher and piercing stares from my classmates... Or maybe it was the first article I had published in The Monitor newspaper while I was still doing my O'Levels... well, whenever it was, it basically made me break the promise I'd made to my dad that I'd become a doctor.

Looking back, if I'd known the amount of familiarisation with chemical compounds that goes into that, I would never have made such utterances.

Then I discovered Macromedia (since taken over by Adobe) and it's suite of applications, then I fancied myself a graphic designer. It wasn't long before I realised that Fireworks is not the go-to for print design.

Tail between my legs, I set out to learn more about Photoshop and Illustrator.

Happy with what I'd picked up, I went on the next adventure, turning my love for writing articles and blog posts  into something more.

So here I am,  a foot in copy, another in art, with mind and soul sold to advertising and all that lies within.
