Born in Soweto, Johannesburg, South Africa, I am a reluctant writer.

A former copywriter who turned to poetry.

Writing has always been a hobby that became a copywriting job and ultimately I now write for a greater purpose.

The main reason I write poetry is to highlight the numerous conundrums that life offers.

All I do is relay life’s questions to the reader to provoke thought or possible answers.

I also driven to write because I think as African people we should take the lead in defining the African experience, play an active role in shaping future generations and express the African perspective..
