Hello, I'm Cassidy, once a bespectacled little girl who loved books most in the world, today an accidental adult with a love for writing and a proclivity for places where I neither speak the language nor recognise the food.

For almost a decade, I worked as a writer and editor for communications agencies in South Africa and Canada. Today – midway between my cat and my kettle – I work for myself, writing for clients across a range of sectors, from those in the tourism, heritage and non-governmental space to others operating in the corporate sphere. I also write for my website, which features a selection of my travel writing and personal musings.

I'm a lover of rooibos tea and a loather of olives. You can try, but I will not be swayed on the latter.

Cassidy hasn't saved anything yet.
