About Me


I’m Francesca, a freelance journalist based between London and Johannesburg.

I have an undergraduate degree from the University of Bristol in History of Art and Italian (2:1), and a master’s degree in TV journalism from City University, London (distinction)

Straight after graduating, I began freelancing at Reuters TV in London where I worked mainly as a social media producer on both breaking news and viral stories. The role involved negotiating access to UGC content, editing (Avid) and script writing.

I am now living in Johannesburg, where I have my own travel and lifestyle column in a regional online magazine, Gauteng Lifestyle Online. I have been published in FT Travel,  South African Airways’ in-flight magazine, Sawubona, Mango Air’s in-flight magazine, Mango Juice, SUITCASEHuffington Post ZA, among others.

I also write travel content and destination guides for Booking.com, easyJet holidays and Loveholidays.com, and viral stories for Scribol.com.
