I’m David and I was born in Durban. We moved to Krugersdorp when I was a bit older, and that’s where I went to high school. We then moved to Cape Town and I have been living here for 4 years now. I have a passion for Music (although it’s not a hobby – it’s a little more serious than that), I also enjoy exploring, the outdoors, bodyboarding and cruising around on my bicycle.
You’re supposed to do what you love every day or else you might as well call the whole thing off.
What about Digital Marketing interests you?
Making real connections. and offering something of true value to people.
How did you come across Deeply Digital?
Through Josh Riley. We’re both in the music scene, that’s how we know one another. One day I sent him a message asking about how to get into social media/creative writing and he hooked me up!
How long have you been part of the Deeply Digital team for?
For 1 whole year.
What did you do before joining the Deeply Digital team?
I’ve always been a musician but my job before this was mixing and pre-batching artisanal cocktails for The House of Machines. I was the manager of their distribution centre.
What have been the highlights of your time here so far?
Everyday you learn something new, or something awesome happens – I’d say my highlight would probably be when my role changed, and I was asked to focus on and pursue copywriting/content writing.
Do you think there is room to grow in the company?
Definitely! The company itself is expanding every day, with more and more clients being onboarded on a weekly basis. So, if you own your role, take the initiative to develop your natural skill set and work hard towards gaining insight into your field, coupled with exceptional work, the sky’s the limit.
How do you find the work environment and the team you work with?
I love everyone here. The environment is fun, collaborative, inspiring and supportive.
Is there anything that you’ve learnt at Deeply Digital that stands out?
As I said, I learn something new almost every single day. I suppose what stands out is that I am continuously encouraged to pursue my natural forte and develop my skills. It’s brilliant.
What is your favourite social media platform and why?
Instagram – there are less rants and it’s more personal.
