    LET'S TELL YOUR STORY! I can help you create a narrative for: - Screenplays (TV & Film) - Fiction & Non-Fiction books - Video Games - Ad Campaigns (KPI oriented) - Brand development (Personal & Organisational) - Blogs & Podcasts Storytelling is as older than the art of writing. My priority when telling any story is to evoke emotions out of readers and viewers- Every story must be an experience. I have 7 years of experience in Video Production, CG/Animation, scriptwriting, and Music Production. I dabble in Cinematics (Unreal engine), character development (Zbrush and drawing), Map making, music, and anything else that I can use to bring the words of the story to life.

    I completed my Post-Graduate Certificate in Education in 2013 and I have also completed my Master's degree in International Relations. My Bachelor’s degree majors were Psychology and International Relations and I have been a tutor for undergraduate students. My background in research and writing has provided me with superior writing and proof-reading skills. I've also written for an entertainment website, so I have some experience in writing and blogging. I have worked as a freelance researcher, and I'm currently a full-time teacher at a private school with 6+ years of experience in education. As a teacher, I love using technology, especially since the switch to online teaching during the lockdown so I'm comfortable with a range of software and applications. As a teacher, I am always working with deadlines and I'm happy to say that I've rarely, if ever, missed one.

    Greetings and thank you for taking the time to visit my profile. Allow me to extend a warm welcome akin to a cozy cabin in the woods. I am delighted to have you here, particularly as you seek fresh talent. As a proficient English speaker, writer, and reader, I possess native-level expertise. While Zulu is my mother tongue, I am also proficient in two other distinctively South African languages, namely Sotho and Xhosa. Holding a Bachelor of Laws (LLB) degree from the esteemed University of South Africa (UNISA), I have honed my legal acumen and gained valuable experience in drafting declaration statements. Currently, I am pursuing a Master of Laws (LLM) in International Law at the University of Pretoria, with the intent of utilizing my specialized knowledge to shape the future of the global community. Opting to study law was an obvious choice, as it aligned with my aspiration of being a real-life superhero, and the practice of law comes remarkably close to fulfilling that ambition. My legal education has equipped me with invaluable skills, refining my abilities as a writer and researcher. For over a decade, I have been honing my writing craft, amassing extensive experience since 2010. While my writing endeavors encompass various genres, my particular focus lies in the realm of creative writing. Formulating captivating story concepts and seeing them through to fruition has become second nature to me. At present, my ongoing book project has already exceeded 150,000 words, with no end in sight. Due to my rigorous legal studies during my university tenure, writing copious amounts, exceeding 2,500 words within a few hours, has become an effortless task. I am now capable of producing up to 7,000 words in a single day, thanks to the mastery I have achieved. In conclusion, I consider myself a wordsmith, where the written word serves as my greatest strength. My objective is to deliver work that embodies both value for money and time. As a budding freelancer endowed with extensive writing skills and experience, particularly in drafting declaration statements, I guarantee a consistent output of high-quality work.

    Hi there, I am an expert Oracle APEX developer and have been using APEX for more than 12 years. Through my development career, I have developed well over 200 APEX applications including the database build. Many of these projects have been enterprise scale systems with hundred of concurrent users. Many developers will claim to know APEX. The problem, however, is APEX is rather easy to learn, but it's also easy to make a mess and to go about things the wrong way. You want a secure, scaleable, and most of all, supportable application. In my most recent work, I managed a team of junior developers, taught them APEX and guided them through the correct development process. For me, there are some fundemental issues to be addressed in any APEX project: - The application logic ought to reside in the database and not in the application - The application must enforce a solid user security model - All pages should have sub-second rendering - The application should make use of pre-established standards - APEX_DEBUG should be used to properly instrument all pl/sql code - Unless business logic demands it, declarative components should always be used for performance - Large applications are best divided into scalable modules - A proper development lifecycle should be employed - Reusability should never be sacrificed for business logic Please do let me know if you have any questions. Also, even if you do not contract me, I would be happy to offer any guidance for your work. Thanks for your kind consideration.

    I believe writing to more than creating grammatically correct content, though that is of the utmost importance. As a writer of things that exist primarily in the Speculative Fiction realm of creation, it also involves the world building of an environment that will not only host the story but also present the right challenges and opportunities for the growth of the characters and the story as a whole. I have both the writing experience and knowledge necessary to make an impression by producing an enthralling and compelling content across multiple sub-genres beneath the umbrella of Speculative Fiction. I posses a high attention to detail, story structure, character development, grammar and punctuation. I am highly adaptable to different writing assignments and enjoy learning new things to enhance my job performance.
