I’m a savvy creative leader, entrepreneur with more than 8 years of in-house and agency experience. I hold a Bachelor’s degree in Commerce from Rhodes University and a graphic design certificate from the University of Cape Town.
I kick-started my marketing journey as a junior product consultant for Liquid Telecom (formerly Neotel) for their SME and consumer division. I then went to do the Trainee Manager programme for Pick n Pay. My passion for digital marketing led me to start my own design agency, Anakanya Media in 2014. In 2016 I founded Akio Digital Agency, where I currently serve as its Chief Creative Officer. I Grew from being a freelancer to running a profitable, full-service digital agency within 2 years. Akio has employed and empowered many young designers through its internship programme. I have a proven track record of growing businesses through marketing and creative services.
I work closely with clients to create long-term plans and goals for all their digital marketing platforms. My work involves developing digital strategies, designing websites, creating engaging content, identifying the best ways to promote the content and measuring ROI.
