Welcome to my site! I'm a food and lifestyle journalist, editor and content expert, with over a decade of experience working at some of the UK's best-known brands.

I am Deputy Editor at Waitrose & Partners Food  magazine. Previously I worked as Food Director at Sainsbury's Magazine and as a lifestyle editor at The Telegraph. My work has also been featured in Metro, The i,  The Times, Foodism, Eater, and Londonist, among other publications. I regularly appear on the radio, including Radio 4 and Radio London, as well as judging and interview panels.

I am experienced in writing, editing, commissioning, recipe development, social media, digital strategy, copywriting and drinking dangerous quantities of coffee.

My cookbook The Brownie Diaries – a brownie recipe for every mood and moment – comes out in Feb 2022; extra brownie points for pre-ordering. My first book, Made in London, the story of the capital through its food, is also available here.
