Hello. My name is Amber

ruthless_amber-jacobsen_blackandwhite-portrait_2016-09… and this is my online sandbox. Welcome.

I’m a twenty-something year old not-quite-Born-Free South African, born in Johannesburg and raised in beautiful, little Knysna in the Western Cape. After completing a quirky, somewhat unconventional Montessori high-school education, I returned to the City of Gold in search of likeminded folk and a tertiary education.

Now a WITS grad with a few years of work experience under my belt, I’m working in South Africa’s fledgling digital space and loving every second of it! My official title is “Junior Digital Consultant“, which encompasses a range of exciting (and often challenging) digital and consulting activities, and also allows me to don the hat of Junior User Experience Designer, which feels more and more comfortable every day.

I’m extremely passionate about food and all things gastronomical, but Travel, Music and Tech also make me tick. I’m a lover of interesting people, decent wine and stimulating conversation. I want to know all about how us humanoids are harnessing technology to make the world a better place… Mine is a bit of a blunt outlook, which isn’t everyone’s cup of tea – but my quick tongue and I have a knack for copywriting and a wicked way with words (if I say so myself), so I’ll keep it.

I believe in self love and love selfies. Follow me as I ramble on about News, Recipes, Opinions, Reviews and Current Affairs. We’ll leave politics out of it.

Bring your Good Vibes Only.
