Bio
I was born and raised in Sydney where my passion for food began when I was young. Growing up in a large Greek family, food was meant to be shared with family and friends in abundance, which was almost every weekend. My love of food came from my grandmother so naturally this fuelled my passion and curiosity for all things Mediterranean, so in my early twenties I travelled to London where I studied at Leiths School of Food and Wine and La Varenne in Paris, then embarked on a culinary food tour of Europe for 2 years before returning to Australia to pursue my career and passion for food.

Since the mid 1990's I have worked in Sydney and Melbourne as the food editor for one of Australia's leading food magazines for 5 years, worked as a freelance food editor, writer and food styist for numerous food and lifestyle magazines and publishers, studied at the Culinary Institute in the Napa Valley and travelled extensively throughout Asia and the Middle East where my love of Middle Eastern and Asian cuisine has developed.

My extensive experience in the food industry as a food stylist and editor and my love of travel and different cuisines along with my passion for food and fresh produce and an eye for detail I think reflects in my work in not only creating the food but making the food the absolute focus.

Over the last 20 years, I have had the good fortune to work with Sydney’s foremost leading photographers where I have been able to create, beautiful innovative food and images and fuel my passion.

My many list of clients have included top food magazines Gourmet Traveller, Gourmet Wine, Vogue Entertaining, BBC Good Food, Belle Interiors, Australian Good Taste, Family Circle, Diabetic Living, Recipes, and Better Homes and Gardens as well as publishing cookbooks for Murdoch Books, Bauer Media, Penguin, New Holland, Weight Watchers, Random House and Arbon Publishing.

I have also had extensive experience in Advertising within the Corporte Market with clients such as AML, Australian Pork Corporation, Weight Watchers, Maggi, Nestle, Lean Cuisine, David Jones, Seriously Vodka, Jamaica Blue, Muffin Break, Inghams, Steggles, Sunbeam, Serena Tuna and Arnotts as some of my major clients over the years.
