I’m currently enrolled as a Master’s student in politics at the University of Pretoria, and I hold an Honours degree in International Relations.
I’ve worked as a researcher and analyst at the University’s Centre for International Political Studies, where I wrote and edited papers and provided political analysis for the media and other organisations. I’ve taught a course on political conflict, and presented papers at several conferences, including an international conference at Georgia State University. In the past I’ve worked as a freelance web designer and a staff writer for an online magazine.
My writing has been featured in The Financial Mail, The Cape Times, The Pretoria News, Rapport and African Security Review. I’m a regular guest on “180 Degrees” on SABC News International, and I make occasional appearances on the eNews Channel and SABC Africa. I’ve also appeared on Radio 702 and Channel Africa, and been interviewed in print by publications such as the Washington Post and AFP.
I have a diverse set of interests including politics, philosophy, foreign affairs, culture, the media and the economy. My hobbies include debating, running, poker, amateur astronomy, and the ancient art of frisbee.
