My career started in the office of the State Attorney in South Africa. I then worked for a number of years in local government before changing to journalism. I was Political Correspondent for Die Vaderland, a Johannesburg afternoon paper and Deputy Editor of Oggendblad, a Pretoria morning paper, both of which have since closed down.
I have wide interests and keep abreast of all political, financial and technological developments.
Subsequent to my journalistic career I was appointed a senior officer in the South African Police. I rose to the rank of Brigadier, later changed to Director, and ended that career as Police Commissioner for Johannesburg.
In the UK I worked for a Recruitment Agency and also for a local authority at their Socal Services Department where my news sense was stimulated daily.
I am an enthusiastic journalist who is looking forward to re-enter my preferred profession.
