Eugene graduated from the University of Cape Town with distinctions in financial accounting and classical piano. He then spent over two-and-half years working in branding and communications at two of South Africa’s top market research companies. Eugene also spent over three-and-a-half years at an eLearning start-up, all while building his business as an award-winning writer.

And as B2B copywriter and content marketer, he interviews a company’s happy customers and uses their words to create authentic case studies and testimonials that drive sales and improve the bottom line.
