Man, I get asked this A LOT at dinner parties. In which my answer is always, as a young professional nutritionist I could very clearly see two things everyday people were struggling with about nutrition - the over complication of the subject and finding the time to make healthy recipes. So I sat under a tree for a while (I didn't) and decided that I would become the most realistic nutritionist the universe had ever seen (cue lightning bolt sound). In a flash (it took ages) I adapted all my teachings to give the nitty-gritty facts as fast and simply as possible, often referencing myself as a little digestive enzyme that breaks down nutrition into bite-size digestible chunks for you to go away and marinate on (cute, right?). I sieve out the unnecessary methods and strip recipes down to their bare essentials for anyone to whip up impressive culinary eats, using ingredients and equipment we all know and like. A revolutionary way of cooking is needed that can keep up with the speed of innovation of our modern food culture and its called Food Hacking.

Born in 80's coastal Britain (hence, that bloody accent) I didn't always have an urban squeaky clean diet. I was raised on the very common weekday 'Birdseye-McCain Diet' because it was quick and easy for my hard working single Mother - who is actually a very talented Cook. I didn't complain as I loved veggie fingers, mashed potato and baked beans after a long day of confusing maths and Tamagotchi parenting (Gen-y will understand). Now I'm not sure if it was the beige breakfast cereal, the beige school dinners or the beige after school teas by the tv, but something went very wrong. You see I became a Nutritionist because at a very young age I went kaput (broken in German). We are not in control of many things in our life, but the wonderful thing is we do control what goes into our bodies. The very sad truth from my own experience is that we have to hit rock bottom before we start doing this in a nourishing way to prevent disease. I hit rock bottom hard and fast. The medical system had failed me and we had no choice to venture into the unknown territory of 'complementary therapy'. In doing so we stumbled upon a local Nutritionist and I started to feel better within three weeks and my destiny was set. I was a passionate personal trainer for many years but turned my head to focus on purely nutrition a couple of years later by studying at the Australian College of Natural Therapy (ACNT) in Sydney.  I now reside in my adopted home in the Northern Beaches, where you can find me coaching hungry clients around the globe via my innovative on demand nutrition question.

I have been cooking up a storm as the ‘Good Chef’ for Channel 10's popular Australian television show 'Good Chef Bad Chef', where Adrian Richardson and I rustle up meals that are sometimes healthy, sometimes comforting, but always delicious. My debut book 'Food Hacker' launches July 2018, where my philosophy and recipes have been stuffed into beautiful pages of dribbly goodness. I'm not all work though. On my down time, I like to stand up paddle board around my idyllic bay or surf my beloved longboard with my salty blonde chums. I enjoy discovering new food trends at fresh food markets and reviewing restaurants in Sydney and Melbourne. I discovered the wonderful life tool of meditation a couple of years ago, so when I am not whizzing around trying to fulfil my life's purpose, you may find me practising the art of modern Buddhism.

Utterly adoring my life and work is what I do best, so if you invite me into your precious world I am sure my infectious positivity will rub off on you. My technique is always to begin by predominantly listening to YOU. I believe a lot of the time we can heal our mind and body by simply tuning into our bodies more and listening to what they have been trying to tell us through strange signs and symptoms for years. Let me give you a personal example...I have been a Vegetarian from age three, I simply listened to my body and it never required or requested meat - I was just born that way. Not the greatest Detective? Well, this is what I do best, so please feel confident to hire me as a body contractor to solve an ongoing body mystery. Ask a Question
