Meet the Lecturers
Education Manager, and Lecturer: Marketing
MBusSci (UCT) and PhD candidate in Industrial Marketing (LTU). 3 most valuable lessons on the journey that is knowledge: the best sight is insight, science is golden, and well done is better than well said.
Acting Head of Department, and Senior Lecturer: Graphic Design and Art Direction
I’m proud of my industry achievements, but even more proud of being creative with my super talented students. They teach me something new every day.
Senior Lecturer: Graphic Design and Art Direction
I have an odd mix of fine art, industry and years of lecturing experience. I use this to instill a problem-solving approach, with dollops of crafting tossed in. I love seeing students push themselves.
Lecturer: Marketing, Advertising & Communications (MAC)
Passion and purpose are what drives me. And people. And being curious. And this place. I seriously love this place! And every day, I get to use what I’ve learnt in nearly 20 years in the industry and share it with some incredible students.
Senior Lecturer: Digital Design
If it runs on electricity, I can help. I have had an interesting career, I've worked in art, music, design, theatre, dance (not actually dancing), jewellery... I love taking on complex problems that require divergent thinking.
Lecturer: Copywriting/Digital Content
I’m a passionate taskmaster - after 20 years in the industry, I know what it takes to compete out there. That’s what I teach.
Lecturer: Visual Studies With 5 years experience teaching at tertiary institutions, I encourage students to apply conceptual design thinking to theoretical subjects, and always conscious of the inter-relationship between theory and practice.
Lecturer: Art Direction
I have 13 years industry experience, including 8 as a lecturer. I love all things audiovisual, currently busy with my MFA at Michaelis School of Fine Arts and thrive on shaping the young minds of tomorrow.
Lecturer: Graphic Design
I’ve been a lecturer for 13 years, teaching visual communication, drawing and illustration. I’ve also worked as an illustrator. I’m an artist and have been painting for 25 years. I’m mad about all things visual and I like to share this enthusiasm with the younger generation.
Lecturer: Learnerships and mentor (skills development)
I’ve 14 years industry experience, including 5 years teaching and mentoring young interns. I’m driven by transformation and motivated by Nelson Mandela’s quote “Education is the greatest weapon which you can use to change the world.”
Curiosity, exploring and creating is what I'm about. I've worked as an artist, designer, illustrator and most recently, photographer and educator. Happy and excited to be surrounded by other hard-working creative thinkers!
"I believe that creativity should be practised so that it becomes second nature, like brushing your teeth or putting on underpants. I hope to encourage students to be fearless at drawing and creative thinking.
I use over 20 years in the industry, together with 10 years lecturing experience, to empower students, watch them grow and ultimately do it better than any of us!
I write online courses and programmes that entice, encourage, and engage students to continue on their learning journeys.
