Please visit my portfolio page to see more of my work.

After a career working for publishing and creative agencies, I followed my passion for food and retrained at The Edinburgh School of Food and Wine. I worked as a private chef in the beautiful wilds of Perthshire but decided to swap the hills for city life, and returned to London to work as a food stylist.

Food is my absolute passion and nothing excites me more than discovering new flavours and inspiring places to eat. The list of must-go-to eateries is ever-growing… When I’m not cooking I love to walk and escape back to the hills whenever I get the opportunity.

Food styling
I have styled food for magazines and books, worked on TV programmes and also assisted many top stylists on editorial, marketing and food commercial shoots.
Food stylist clients include: Men’s Health, FHM, GQ, Morrison’s, The Guardian and Quarto Publishing.

Recipe testing and development
I offer a recipe developing, writing and testing service. I am passionate about writing recipes that are nutritious, taste delicious and look great too, but are easily accessible so anyone can make and enjoy them.
