In 1996 Jenny completed her law degree and to the delight of her parents, got a job as a lowly paid copywriter.
She developed an affinity for radio during the latter part of her career, winning metal in the category at international awards over 45 times. These included four D&AD Yellow Pencils, 9 gold Cannes Lions, as well as a Cannes Grand Prix.
Jenny currently peddles her distinctive brand of darkness as Executive Creative Director of TBWA\Hunt\Lascaris.
She has made it her mission to not only share her love of radio, but more importantly, to instill an appreciation of writing craft. Call her crazy, but she believes that writers should actually be able to write.
She is an executive committee member of South Africa’s Creative Circle and has sat on juries at D&AD, Cannes Lions, One Show and Clios.
Her finest achievements are daughters, Grace (4) and Ivy (2), who help her maintain her incredibly chic under-eye rings.
