– Food Stylist, Recipe Developer, Photographer, Food and Wine Writer, Chef –
I was born and bred in Cape Town, where I spent my childhood dancing in Cape Town’s leading ballet company up until the age of 18. I studied Hospitality Management and was quickly inspired with a growing knowledge of food, I found myself in the world of Food Styling in 2013. In 2015 I ventured off on my own as a young Food stylist and soon had large freelance projects that I am lucky enough to still be working on today.
I started Eat With Me in 2016 as a platform to post daily recipes that I was whipping up in the kitchen for myself and my fiancé and before long it turned into a wine reviewing, food product testing, traveling blog where I could write about everything I love. In September 2017, Life With Me launched and it better suits my love for all things fine food, delicious drink, exhilarating travel (both local and international) and a behind the scenes look at my professional career as a Food Stylist in South Africa working for the most incredible brands.
Today I juggle my time between Food and Decor styling/photography for brands such as Vida è caffè, Carrol Boyes and reviewing for Life With Me. A passionate love affair for all things fine food, proudly South African wine, luxe design and both local and international travels. My explorations across the globe have definitely shaped the person, stylist and creator that I am today. From the unusually inspiring cuisine in the far East to the expansive shores of the Caribbean, I have created one platform for all things lifestyle, a fine woven thread connecting us all to the finer things in life.
Prefers: Fresh mornings to late evenings, wintery days in Cape Town, black clothing, a classic wardrobe to trendy pieces, Saturdays best spent at farmers markets and touring wine farms, an at home pamper session, date nights with my other half, my Scottish terrier pup, fresh flowers to brighten my kitchen, many MANY candles, chunky necklaces, red lipstick, delicious food, styling and photographing over writing a recipe, MCC and Chardonnay, grey interior and cheese boards for dessert.
