For 12 years I researched and wrote the story of Johannesburg, a city that was founded on gold and money and a mad rush to live life to the fullest. I interviewed people who were there in the making of that story. Here are some of the articles I wrote over those years.

For several years I wrote for the Brand South Africa website,, and had great fun exploring everything from walking in the footsteps of the great naturalist and explorer William Burchell; taking a look at what heritage means; to trying to get into the soul of Winnie Madikizela-Mandela in her published journal from prison; looking at the history of shweshwe fabric and stylish clothes made from it; to taking a look at HIV-positive Nkosi Johnson’s short life. 


Stories I wrote for the Mail & Guardian newspaper:


It's a gas to be living in Egoli

The good, the old and the ugly

And for the Sunday Times:

Biking around Croatia
