I have gained a wide variety of both transferable and specific skills, which relate to working in media:
My work experience at CVC MEDIA and TBN has given me invaluable insight into the television/film/video making process; with hands-on experience of directing, writing, location shooting, green screen shooting, compositing,
producing, vfx, studio filming, admin work and general runner duties.
My enjoyment and critical interest in entertainment media (television, film, journalism, music, radio and new media) increased tremendously throughout my career and continues to grow with experience.
My passion for art and media was birthed during my employment at Dynisty Entertainment, Rivercorp and UVP, where I worked as a Graphic Designer (creating logos, banners, posters, CD covers, business cards, and general stationary), a Magazine Layout Artist (processing work from the design stage all the way through to print), and DTP Operator (preparing various designs for foil and embossing blocks).
My written work (reviews and interviews) have been published in various lifestyle magazines (including Vision Magazine, Yes! Magazine, The African Scholar, Trend Frenzy, Ido Magazine and Ziwaya Magazine). I am also the lead script writer at CVC MEDIA, writing and developing ideas for screenplays and the founder, editor and a review critic for Fortress of Solitude, an entertainment magazine site, which boast a following of 30 000 unique views per month (on average).
My interest in HTML/CSS and JQuery developed at an early age; editing code in Notepad, uploading and maintaining websites for E-WISE Systems, Dynisty Entertainment, Vision Magazine, UVP Products, Claymore, UVP Properties and 1Africa Radio. My experience as the Online Content Manager of Fortress of Solitude has also aided my proficiency in Wordpress, SEO and Social Media.
My passion for music creation lead to a short career in music; recording, writing, performing, sound mixing and producing. After three successful chart-topping singles (with our music aired on TUKSFM, UCT Radio, CKIfm, BayFm, East Coast Radio, MFM, Radio Riverside, KovsieFm, RandburgFM, Truth FM) the group disbanded.
My experience as a sound engineer (over 10 years) and my past in music has proven to be helpful with creating film scores.
