Hello there! Thank you for stopping by:)
My name is Senzo, and I love Jesus, creativity and its impact on making the world a better place. 
I live in Port Elizabeth, South Africa where I completed my Masters in Media Studies at Nelson Mandela University. My research looked at the impact of Arts Education on performance in maths and science. In 2019 I started my DPhil in Media Studies with my exciting topic to be announced soooon:) In between that, I worked as an Art Director at an advertising agency called Boomtown, from 2011 to 2017. 
Nelson Mandela University is my current employment, where I head up the Graphic Design qualification, lecture full-time into Graphic Design and Media Studies and lead the Faculty of Humanities Brand Team. I also co-lead a small brand studio that has a big heart for doing meaningful work.
