Food & Drink Editor

"Unbelievable looking back, but I actually wrote the first ever food tweet in Australia and possibly the world on @frombecca, and had my very early food blog published on the Sony homepage in the U.S. for the launch of the movie - Julie & Julia - in the States. Just like in that movie, this changed my world!

Then I thought it was time to get serious so I launched which was one of the first food (and booze and travel) blogs in Australia. Since then my work has also included print (including one of the first weekly columns about small bars in Sydney in the newspapers), radio, video TV presentations interviewing celebrity chefs and even a cameo on Junior MasterChef Australia TV.

But I needed new inspiration and to represent all of my life and my loves and ongoing interests and so a couple of years ago started working on this new project and founded Sydney Scoop which launched at the end of 2014.

Sydney. Born and bred. This is my city."

"Starting in the founding team at Sydney Scoop before launch, I had a desire to learn more about Sydney and to delve into its rich culture and fascinating happenings.

Originally hailing from Goulburn, I have studied literature and film at both University of Wollongong and University of Sydney. I also have a passion for all kinds of music, particularly the new, the exciting and the unexpected.

My aim is for Sydney Scoop to be a guide for those seeking edgy and innovative forms of entertainment to enrich their everyday experience."
