Summary of expertise

With more than 10 years of experience as a diplomat, I have been engaged in strengthening ties between South Africa and other African countries, multilateral organisations, as well as between South Africa and the developed world – most notably the United States and Germany. I have played an active role in South Africa’s mediation efforts in Burundi, the Sudan and Zimbabwe. Early in my career, I briefly worked in industry, where I developed skills that still help me navigate in the international relations arena today. Throughout my teenage years, I held various leadership positions in student organisations that took a stand against apartheid and any other form of injustice. I espouse and uphold these values to this very day.
