I have been blogging and writing since 2007 when I started Veget8, a blog about my vegetarianism and places that I visited whilst being a vegetarian. I am no longer a vegetarian, but I continued with Eating Exeter which was founded in 2011 and is now called Dining Devon.

It continues to this day going from strength to strength. I write about green issues, mental health and food.

I am looking to expand my freelance writing horizon and am open to ideas and opportunities.
