Award-winning British journalist who writes for internationally renowned publications such as The Times, Time Out, Broadsheet and Wining & Dining. Over seven years' experience writing for both print and online media. I write on topics including food, restaurants, health, fitness, lifestyle, travel, spas and weddings. Worked as an official restaurant reviewer since 2007. Founder and editor-in-chief of food and lifestyle magazine The Great Aussie Bite www.thegreataussiebite.com. I lead a team of 40 writers based all across Australia. I create video content and recipes for an international culinary brand.
I am dynamic and creative with a lively conversant writing style. By trade I am a highly skilled culinary professional who has been living and traveling abroad for over seven years with my family and have a wealth of travel and expat experiences from which to draw. I derive a great amount of pleasure from writing and I am pleased to be expanding my professional accomplishments to include writing as a career.
Talented copywriter with several years of blog, copywriting, and business experience, as well as editing and proof-reading, and some photography (mainly with food blogging). Flexible schedule and good communication and research skills.
I am looking for a career with growth potential in adult education such as corporate training, post-secondary classes and vocational classes. Ideally, I would like to develop curriculums and course content for e-learning and online delivery. Since I have enrolled in the Organizational Learning and Instructional Technology program, I have become familiar with the ADDIE model and several theories of adult learning such as Knowles’ Andragogy and Friere’s Pedagogy of the Oppressed. I have also become familiar with Gagne’s work in World War II and his development of the Nine Event of Instruction. I have looked at multiculturalism in the Distance Education and how to meet the needs of students from many backgrounds and cultures. I am familiar with many typical Microsoft Office programs such as Word, Excel, PowerPoint and Outlook. I have also used SharePoint and Prezis for effective classroom presentations. We have worked on many real world problems regarding distance education and how to make it effective to the adult learner.
I am a 'foodie' located in Auckland, New Zealand. I am a food information junkie with a particular passion for baking delicious things using wholesome ingredients. While I am not a trained writer, it's something i enjoy and comes naturally. I want to be a Freelancer because I need an outlet (and an excuse!) for all the information that I find myself googling, so, whether it's 50 chocolate chip recipes you need, a list of 50 green smoothie combinations, a recipe collection featuring 100 ways with mince, an article on the health benefits of coconut oil or a written procedure on how to make bone broth then I'm your girl! When I am not googling foodie stuff I can be found in the kitchen baking and creating wholesome tasty meals for my family. I like to test other people's recipes as well as develop my own. I would love to help you test your recipes and can also assist in recipe development. I am a qualified Food Technologist so I have the advantage of being able to understand food, baking and cooking from a technical perspective. In addition to working as a Food Technologist I have also been a technical writer for an international Food Industry Journal and most recently I have run a home-based cooking class for children and so I'm also an expert in creating recipes that are child-friendly! I am hard-working, flexible and reliable and hope very much that we can work together soon!
I have owned and managed my own catering business and gourmet market for the last 10 years. I developed all recipes/menus/website content from start to finish for my company. I created and offered recipes that ranged from comfort food for the kids to more specialized menus for the most discerning palates. The majority of my food offerings were based on healthy cooking methods. I also have spent time creating gluten free menus and offerings for my clients. During the last 6 months of my career, I have turned my focus to developing recipes for a cookbook and worked with a team from start to finish on writing, testing, editing of over 140 recipes. This recipe development ranged from appetizers to desserts and everything in between with the focus on comfort food.
