Hello World

Published July 30th, 2011

I'm new here. It's always refreshing to stumble upon a good creative community.

Being my intro post, lets start with the basics:

I write, mainly. Blogging, ghostblogging, guest articles, paid-for articles, reviews, you name it. Even fiction and poetry. Writing poetry saved my life. I'm studying Journalism (go figure.)
I have way too many blogs, sites and social media profiles than I care to mention.

I have a corporate day job as a PA and assistant to a very busy Transport Manager, but let's not get into that either.

My passion is art. In all its forms. I paint, I write, I create jewelry, I take photos, I manipulate photos. My art consist mainly of dark and depressing themes. It's my therapy. I believe there's something extraordinarily special about taking a negative emotion and creating something beautiful with it.

dark art
tarantulas (I have 28)
tattoo's (I have 2, so far...)
rain and thunderstorms
Krav Maga (Israeli Close combat)
gadgets and electronics
Stargate (one of my tattoo's is Stargate inspired. lol)

On a more personal front:
I live and work in Johannesburg. Moving here was the best decision I ever made. I'm as gentle as I am stubborn. Just ask the two men in my life. My little family circle include my partner in crime, his teen nephew and our two cats, Clio and Smudge. Oh, and the 28 tarantulas.

That's me in a nutshell! Stay tuned for more updates.
