JoziStyle: Saturdays 12h00-13h00 GMT+2
My show is about what to eat, where to go, and who to know. It’s a bit like Fashion Police for foodies but I also cover travel and lifestyle.
What I enjoy most about my show is that I get to promote what I love about Jozi. There are so many talented people who contribute to our community which makes it a pleasure to promote them. I have full creative control to create content, schedule guests and produce it. When it’s great, it’s great; but, when it’s bad, it’s me!
If I wasn’t a radio presenter… I’ve always had a passion for communication, media and content, so somewhere there. But, I am a radio presenter, so next question…
My greatest highlight has always been meeting interesting people who I would ordinarily never have had the opportunity to meet had I not been on Radio Today. JoziStyle is often shortlisted as the ‘go to’ foodie show by local and international chefs.
My most embarrassing moments? Too many to mention, but I do think it is important to acknowledge them with a sense of humour and move on with the show. I always listen to the podcasts of my shows so I can critique myself.
If someone wanted to become a radio presenter I would encourage them to just go for it. It is a lot of fun, even harder work, but it is incredibly rewarding- although, sometimes I think that a real job would be easier.
I love Johannesburg because of the positive energy. I was reluctant to move here fifteen years ago because I always heard how aggressive it was but I’ve experienced nothing but hospitality and opportunity. Jozi really is the city of gold- and JoziStyle loves that!
I’m proud to be associated with Radio Today Johannesburg because of the incredibly talented people I get to work with. Unlike commercial radio stations, our editorial output is independent of advertisers.
I’m inspired by restaurants that push authentic flavours without compromising on creativity, nutrition or sustainability.

I have a responsibility to promote dining experiences for Jozi foodies, but I take issue with people who mistake frivolous criticism for constructive critique- especially when restaurateurs are creating employment opportunities within the hospitality sector.
Between recordings I manage my own digital marketing agency, attend media launches and produce content for my blog and social media platforms. My job has become my lifestyle: in that work is pleasure, and pleasure makes for great content.
My personal motto: Regret nothing, forgive everyone.
