Beauty, health and wellness writer
Cape Town, South Africa
Daniela is a seasoned writer and editor who began her career in magazines (working for, among others, South African Psychologies, Shape, Men’s Health, Real Simple, In Style and Elle, as well as contributing to Emirates Woman and International Cosmetique News). Her work has been syndicated internationally and she is known for her research and ability to translate complex concepts into articles that will inform and engage the reader.
She has written on a wide range of topics, and specialises in beauty, health and wellness which are, in her eyes, all interconnected. While Beauty with a big B has some potentially negative aspects, she has always been fascinated by its potential for good, and she is passionate about educating readers about skin health. She loves both print and digital and has created and contributed to several content, corporate and medical websites. Her communications company has managed PR and communications for numerous international health and beauty brands. However, writing is still her first love.
Daniela and her lecturer husband live in a rambling Edwardian home at the foot of Table Mountain. They love entertaining with dishes that combine her Italian heritage and global cuisine. Or you will find her reading, knitting, working on her book(s) and enjoying her garden, when not indulging in her secret vice - Jane Austen adaptations and Ru Paul’s Drag Race.
