Eugene graduated from the University of Cape Town with distinctions in financial accounting and classical piano. He then spent over two-and-half years working in branding and communications at two of South Africa’s top market research companies. Eugene also spent over three-and-a-half years at an eLearning start-up, all while building his business as an award-winning writer.
Eugene has written about travel, leisure, food, wine, marketing, media, television, film, music, theatre, art, books, business, personal development, and more for over 70 different websites, newspapers, and magazines across the globe. But what do all his features, articles, and stories have in common? People.
As a journalist and blogger, he’s profiled over a hundred inspiring individuals so far: from Grammy-winning musicians and multinational CEOs, to celebrated fashion designers and the world’s best chefs. And as B2B copywriter and content marketer, he interviews a company’s happy customers and uses their words to create authentic case studies and testimonials that drive sales and improve the bottom line.
