and you won’t have to work a day in your life!”
This quote rings very true for me.
I thought I would show you a part of my world. My career is such a big part of my life and I am one of those lucky people where I am completely in love with what I do. I have worked exceptionally hard and it’s great to see some of the hard work paying off and yet at the same time, there are times when I feel like I haven’t even made a dent in my industry. I love that no day is exactly the same! I am a radio presenter, a TV presenter, a voice over artist and emcee and it keeps me pretty busy. I wouldn’t have it any other way.
I am a radio presenter on 94.7 Highveld Stereo and a part of the Afternoon Drive Show, Monday to Friday from 4pm – 7pm. I am a part of a team with Mark Pilgrim, Derek Alberts (sports presenter) and Lebogang Ntathe (news reporter.)
We are completely unscripted and it is great to work with a team that gets on so well. We don’t stop laughing (on and off air) and the three hours we are on air together fly by.
This is what I see….Mark Pilgrim, my computer screen, microphone etc…
Derek Alberts doing the sport (I always joke that that’s his “fan” behind him)
The great thing with radio is you can tie your hair up, wear no make-up and your pink fluffy slippers… and no one would know 😉
I also started TV presenting on The Expresso Show. You can read how that came about by clicking here
The show is broadcast live in Cape Town and I am the Johannesburg based presenter, so I film all different types of inserts for the show on different locations. I do a lot of cooking with celebrities, cooking with children, interviews and all sorts of other content.
L-R: Camera man: Colin Taylor; me (hair and make-up and no pink fluffy slippers) and the Director Paul van Deventer
Colin kissing the camera
Directing the shots
This is what I see…(except that there are normally people there like sound, director and camera man)
This is a part of my world that brings me such joy. Will post more photos soon…
