I am a South Africa-based freelance journalist working as the Africa correspondent for the leading Dutch newspaper De Telegraaf. In the past I have worked for various other national news outlets in The Netherlands and for FEM Business and travel magazine Mzanzi in South Africa. Current clients besides De Telegraaf include Mail & Guardian, Wild Magazine and corporate network CFO South Africa. Together with my partner Dianne Tipping-Woods I post stories and photos about our travels, people we meet and wildlife we spot on our popular blog Afribird.
