Where do you live?

In sunny South Africa.

Is English your first language?


Are you familiar with American English and cultural nuances?

Yes, I have other US clients, and most of the media (podcasts, television, music, books) I consume is US-based. 

What’s the benefit of choosing you over someone local?

Due to the currency exchange, you get a senior writer at a junior writer rate—a win-win for both of us. 

What are your rates?

I only provide quotes once I know the scope of a project, but to give you some idea: $150 for an 800-word, internet-researched, keyword-optimized blog post.

How do I pay you?

Wise or PayPal makes it easy! 

What about tax?

The income tax portion is mine to declare in South Africa. I invoice you, and you pay me as you would any supplier, claiming my costs as a business expense. 

What is your turnaround time for completing projects?

Turnaround time depends on the scope, but to give you an idea:

  • Blog Post: 24-36 hours
  • Draft 1 of website copy after all information has been gathered: 5 working days

What is your availability for communication and revisions?

In most cases, the time difference works in your favour. I work through your night and early morning to get deliverables in your inbox as you get to work. I’m also able to attend what many people see as the prime-time meeting slot around 10 am your time. 

Can you provide samples of your previous work?

Check out the portfolio on my website.  Alternatively, send me an email to request a sample of my writing from your industry/ niche. 

Do you have any experience with SEO?

Yes, keyword research and writing with SEO best practices is one of my key areas of specialisation.
