“I am an ambitious cook, writer, stylist and photographer simply wanting to make the world a more delicious place…!”
With an academic background in English Language & Linguistics, and an insatiable appetite for all things edible, I pride myself on producing engaging, reader-focused content appropriate for various digital and print media.
With extensive experience in PR, marketing, social media management, content writing, food photography and styling, and recipe development, I have come to understand the food industry from multiple angles to deliver unique and innovative content for regional, national and international food brands and companies including; Marks & Spencer, The Telegraph, Vitamix, Weightwatchers, Lidl, BBC GoodFood, AB Sugar, Timberland US, Pam Lloyd PR, Cartwright & Butler, GrowEatGather, Fussels Fine Foods and Palmers Brewery, amongst others.
Currently based in the heart of the Somerset Levels in the South West of England, I am located in one the country's most highly regarded food regions, offering incredible seasonal produce and hosting some of the nation's best food producers. However, I regularly frequent Bristol and London to stay up-to-date on the latest food trends and the thriving street food markets shaping city eating.
Since living in Somerset, I have taken advantage of my direct access to such delicious ingredients, and spend my spare time developing new recipes and writing my blog [www.hellsbellesbites.com] whilst continually broadening my food repertoire.
FOOD STYLING & PHOTOGRAPHY
Having always had a keen interest in the arts, I like to make food not only taste delicious but appeal to the eye too. Honing my skills both sides of the lens whilst building my food blog, I have gone on to work with several food photographers, videographers and creative agencies to create mouthwatering content.
I produce engaging, reader-focused content appropriate for both digital and print media. Although with a forte for creating content concerning seasonal, regional produce, I write topical content for regional, national and international food and drink brands and publications.
I love creating innovative recipes for various clients and audiences. Published in magazines, used for digital newsletters or simply for social media purposes, I develop achievable, reader-friendly recipes often making use of seasonal and 'on-trend' ingredients.
SOCIAL MEDIA MANAGEMENT
Creating content as well as managing social media platforms is something I do on daily basis. With a thorough understanding of numerous platforms, I have worked with several food brands to create audience-engaging content for variety of campaigns.
A BIT MORE ABOUT ME...
Outside my foodie world, I enjoy festivals, music, friends, tea and of course in true Somerset style, cider!
I also love to travel, with a particular fondness for Canada and South Africa, especially the beautiful and vibrant city of Vancouver!
When I'm not sat in front of a screen or knee deep in washing up in the kitchen, I'm usually found outdoors going for a bike ride, foraging my way around the Somerset countryside or down at the coast in my home county of Dorset.
