I started my journey with Hectic Nine-9 in 2014 as an Online Content Producer – back when the term ‘social media manager’ was still in its infancy! I was tasked with managing one of the biggest online brands in the country – with Hectic Nine-9 ranking in the Top 5 on Facebook, Twitter and YouTube (Instagram was still reserved for aerial foodie photo’s!)
I developed with the brand, as well as with Okuhle Media until October 2017, where I was brought on as Hectic Nine-9’s Producer, taking on the HN9 project for 2 seasons, ending in December 2019. During this time, however, I was taken on as a Creative Director to launch Hectic On 3, the sister tween show for SABC3, (you can find out more about that here).
I like to believe that I cut my teeth on Hectic Nine-9 – the ambitious live television show where anything can (and usually does!) happen. This role has honed my 10 years of experience in the media industry, and has definitely enabled me to test those skills in a holistic, multi-layered production!
