Our Team

The diversity of skills embodied in every member of EDGE’s team is matched only by the diversity of subject areas in which EDGE develops material. We employ writers, academic reviewers, designers, illustrators, computer programmers, editors and subject experts. We are all educators, and all passionate about delivering quality media to our clients. We are energetic, collaborative and optimistic about South Africa’s future. We can’t wait to work with you.

Andrew holds a BCom and MBChB from UCT. After a period of lecturing he started EDGE Publishing with business partner Janse Maritz. Andrew is EDGE Learning Media’s CEO and strategist. When he’s not changing the education landscape, Andrew is riding trails or carving waves.
Janse holds an MCom. Following a career in lecturing at UNISA, he started EDGE Publishing with Andrew Hibling in 2006. Janse is EDGE Learning Media’s chief academic officer. You can catch him enjoying South Africa’s finest grapes, or in the recording booth, but not at the same time!
Paul holds a BSocSci, HDE and MBA, and a grudge against the All Blacks. He has years of local and international experience in print and digital publishing. Paul is passionate about education, particularly how technology continues to impact this essential service.
Nicola holds BBA and BCom (Hons) degrees in Business and Financial Management. She joined EDGE in 2011. Her areas of focus are finance and client relationship management. When she is not enjoying the outdoors she is satisfying her grievous sudoku obsession.
Kim earned her BA from UNISA. She joined EDGE in 2010. Recently, she has been managing EDGE's contributing authors as well as its Durban-based team. Kim is passionate about training, instructional design and trail running (though not necessarily in that order!)
Elle started working at EDGE in 2010, and holds a Diploma in Business & Office Admin, as well as Graphic Design and Art Direction – but her real passion is biscuits. She heads up an experienced academic team of subject specialists.
Cass joined EDGE in 2009, when the company was still small (but growing). Her areas are design, layout and print production. When she is not contending with tight deadlines, this doyen of print loves to catch up on her series.
Reshma holds a BCompt from UNISA. Since joining the Durban office in 2012, her duties have included (among others) the moderation of digital products. Reshma has worked as a teacher and lecturer, and this is where her passion lies. In her spare time she enjoys feeding those she holds dear.
Cara joined EDGE in 2013. She is based in the Durban office, where her responsibilities include sales and customer relations – and anything else she sticks her nose into! She is something of a film junkie, and dabbles in graphic design and editing. Give her an excel spreadsheet and watch her shine.
Jonathan is a former bouncer and current academic reviewer (aka member of the logic police). He has an MA in Philosophy, and his interests include behavioural science and learning how to use different methodologies, such as serious games, to improve people’s learning experiences.
Earl joined EDGE in 2014. He has studied graphic and web design and is responsible for layout, artwork and animations. If he’s not behind the wheel of his beloved Jimny, you’ll see him at one end of a fishing rod (especially if there’s a big fish at the other end).
Siphe has a BA (Hons) in Linguistics from UWC. She joined EDGE in 2014, since which time her responsibilities have included proofreading and quality assurance of textbooks and other learning material. If you’re a shop owner, you may have seen Siphe peering in through the window.
Imraan was saved by EDGE from his boring accounting job in 2014. He holds a Bachelor of Business Science (Hons) degree, and has a number of years of lecturing experience. He is now a bona fide instructional designer and origami master (in training).
Deborah holds a BA (Hons) in Linguistics from UCT, and joined EDGE in 2014. She has an obsession with grammar, and when not checking and polishing copy, this self-confessed tea and chocolate addict can be found enjoying a good book under the shade of a tree.
Kendra holds a BCompt degree from UNISA. Since joining EDGE in 2015, she has focused on accounts and client orders. She plays 30 Seconds like a boss and has declared permanent Scrabble war against her mother.
Thomas has a BSc (Hons) in Computer Science and a BSc in Mathematics. He joined EDGE in 2015 as the lead software and web developer. If he is not coding software at work, he is coding software at home; unless he’s mixing cocktails – in which case it’s ‘Party at Tom’s place’.
Karl joined EDGE in 2015, and has since become EDGE's CMS champion, a role for which his years of e-commerce experience prepared him well. If he is not glued to a rugby game on television, he is spoiling the three ladies in his life – his wife and two daughters!
Tracy joined EDGE in 2015. She holds an honours degree in Public Relations, and has previous experience in corporate writing. She is currently a junior publishing assistant. In between her checking of manuscripts, she enjoys drawing and will do anything if you bribe her with food!

After a six-year long career in lecturing all things Accounting at Damelin and MSC Business College, she joined EDGE in 2016 as the Content Specialist – Academic Content Evaluator. When she is not ‘feeding’ her passion for Accounting and it is not raining in Cape Town, she enjoys watching the sun disappear into the ocean while sitting on one of the big rocks at Camps Bay beach".

Brighton is an Information Technology specialist. He joined EDGE in 2016 as a Software and Web developer. If he is not on with his computer gadgets, be sure to find him giving thanks and praise to “The Most High” up in the mountains of Cape Town – Including the 8th wonder of the world “Table Mountain”.
Tracey holds a Masters degree in Psychology and is currently completing her PhD in Psychology. Tracey is passionate about education, and has experience in research and lecturing at a tertiary level. She is now an Instructional Designer at EDGE. When she's not constructing storyboards, you will likely find her in a yoga studio, upside down or inside out.
Anthony joined Edge in 2016. He studied film and psychology. He does instructional design and whatever else you can throw at him. When not at work, he likes to keep himself busy with games, drawing, TV, hiking and reading - sometimes all at once.

Natasha joined EDGE in 2016 as a Customer Service administrator. With over five years in the Customer Service field, she knows how to put a smile on a client’s face. When she’s not charming the clients, she enjoys spending time with her family, braaing, picnicking and playing boardgames.
Kim joined EDGE in 2016 as an office administrator. She has eight years of administration experience, and she uses these skills to ensure that our office runs smoothly and efficiently. She brings a positive and energetic atmosphere our team, and makes the office feel like home away from home.
Megan was initially recruited as an author for EDGE, and then later joined the team as an academic reviewer in 2016. She holds a BSS in Linguistics and Psychology and a BA (hons) in Linguistics from UKZN. When she is not doting on her cat or enjoying a Zumba class, she is up for anything involving wine and good company.
Leigh holds a BSocSci, PGCE, and PGDip JMS from Rhodes University. Leigh is an academic reviewer who can often be found rocking back and forth beneath her desk whilst eating pies. Her years as a teacher and journalist have left her very suspicious and irrational. She is also extremely jealous and slow to forgive when it comes to anything food related. When Leigh is not underneath her desk she can be found serving her cat.
