FYI: For a number of years, I’ve written as Kate Ferreira, but am now using Thompson Davy.
Hi, I’m Kate Thompson Davy. I am a resourceful, reliable, and creative freelance journalist, writer, comms strategist, and coach
I have been freelancing since early 2013, and working in media for 14 years. I am currently the technology columnist for Business Day, and my other clients include the Financial Mail, CFO South Africa, SA Homeowner, Woman & Home, and The Sunday Times, among others. I am based in Cape Town, South Africa.
I often work with academics and researchers, to develop stories out of their scientific and political work, and to communicate these with a non-academic audience.
I particularly enjoy working on people-centric narratives; collaborating on data-led projects; unpacking consumer finance, entrepreneurship, and economic development topics; as well as researching and producing science, innovation, and technology-related content.
