Who I Am

I am an ardent believer in the Power of Stories to Influence Thinking, aspiring to change the world one story at a time.

If you have a story with a message that could assist in making our world a better place, I am keen to help you get it known across the globe, be it in print or in audio-visual form.

Almost thirty years of communications and media experience, and a broad educational background — Ba Architecture, AFTRS Post Graduate Diploma in Film & TV Management, NASA (USA) endorsed Project Management Certificate, Diploma Public Relations, MaFA Professional Editing & Creative Writing — provide me with a unique insight to strategically navigate the world of independent storytelling.

In my ‘past life’ I worked in various roles on film and television productions with award-winning talents, such as Dion Beebe, Pip Karmel, Richard Jasek, to name a couple. I wrote a four-part TV documentary series on the power and nature of consciousness which was produced in the USA and has garnered a global following as well as a couple of awards.

All this, together with an innate talent for synthesising complexities and a love-hate relationship with boundaries (I have often been caught bending the rules, legally, of course), mean, I have learned the rules so as to work out how best to break them for maximum effect.

SoulGate Media is the echo of my conviction that the power of entertainment arts demands a lot more attention and responsibility. My dedication to changing the systems and thinking that impact the society and the environment by helping deliver meaningful stories to the world stems from this conviction. Broadening the understanding of our world, our communities, and ourselves through the joy of sharing a good story as written word, film, or music, via the many new media platforms, is my aim.

An insatiable curiosity inspires me to explore topics such as: The Science of Creativity, The Power of Stories to Influence Thinking, Contagious Ideas, Permission Marketing, Cutting Edge Innovations, Sustainability, Permaculture, Equality, Human Rights, Self-sufficiency, Quantum Physics, The Singularity, Chaos Theory, Context Management, Process De-cluttering, Collaborative Networks, and the list goes on…

This quote sums up my modus operandi:
