my name is AlÉz.
I’m a writer, designer, and yoga teacher based in Cape Town. This is my website and happy place. Here you can spy what I’ve been writing, designing, trying, reading, and wearing. You can also hire me for your upcoming creative projects, and/or book a private yoga class. Now, sit back, relax, and have a scroll. Let me know if you’ve got any questions. Other than that? Enjoy!
Ask Aléz is an anonymous platform where YOU get to ask me your questions about all things sex. Together, we’re on a mission to bust taboos and talk openly about our bodies and what we choose to do or choose not to do with them.
A collection of content for people who want conscious, honest, and in-depth stories about things that matter to their everyday. It aims to address assumptions on what deserves serious study, viewing video game releases, lipstick choice, and sex toy trends through fields like ethnography, moral philosophy, and psychology.
It talks with not for and not down to its readers; believing that the people reading features are at least as smart as the people writing them. It’s not for everyone, but it might well be for you.
let me do that for you
Hiring a freelancer can be scary. You don’t always know what you’re going to get, when you’re going to get it, or how much it’s going to cost you. You might feel it’s easier to stick with what (or who) you know, even if it means the work doesn’t meet your exacting standards.
I get it. But all of that ends now. After eight years in the content creation industry, working with dozens of clients on projects colossal and teeny, I have the professional and interpersonal skills needed to exceed your expectations. Hire me for your every editorial need - always at an affordable rate.
In Cape Town and looking to start a yoga practice? Or maybe you’re looking to advance what you already know? Book a private yoga class for a tailored, authentic, and thoughtful experience. First lesson is free for beginners, with no obligations.
NOTES FROM THE NIGHT-STAND
A frequently updated corner is home to my latest loves in lingerie, sex toys, and books. It’s not pro-consumption, it’s pro-YouFindingCoolStuffYou’llReallyLove.
