Over the past decade, I’ve been working on uniting my favourite parts of life—food, travel, and reading—into a meaningful career.
As the business & content manager at ESP Culinary Consulting, my job is to travel the world, creating and fine-tuning content for restaurants, hotels, resorts, and tourism departments. I work closely with renowned chef and consultant Eric Pateman, who Forbes has called “the tastemaker who’s defining countries’ entire culinary tourism strategies.”
Over the years, I’ve held full-time roles in food and lifestyle publishing, editing, content marketing, copywriting, and e-commerce. I’ve had the opportunity to write and edit content for some of my favourite brands, including Penguin Random House, Quietly Media, and Purdys Chocolatier. And I’ve helped edit books by beloved chefs like Yotam Ottolenghi, Ricardo Larrivée, Bob Blumer, David Hawksworth, and Anna Olson.
I also take on freelance projects, both writing and editing. I help my clients out with lots of different editorial tasks, usually focused on web copy, blog posts, print articles, and newsletters. My specialties include clear communication, brand voice, product descriptions, and proofreading.
Outside of work, you might find me writing short fiction, taking photos, making chocolates, wandering in botanical gardens, or hunting for treasures in antique shops.
Looking for a writer and editor in Vancouver?
I take on occasional freelance work, with a preference for projects related to food, travel, or literature. If chocolate is involved somehow, count me in. I can help with things like:
- Blog posts. I enjoy researching and writing, and have done plenty of ghostwriting.
- Web copy. I can start from scratch or help tidy up the text already on your site.
- Manuscript feedback. Wondering if your book is publishable? Not sure what to do next? I can help.
