I have a passion for great design whether it's interior decor, gadgets, or even food. I hold a professional qualification in Interior Design and so somehow or another most of my writing involves some aspect of design. I love to cook and make tasty vegetarian food, but it has to look good as well as be super-delicious.
My absolute passion though is baking, so when I'm not writing here I'm experimenting in the kitchen or working on my new Fabulous Baking blog.
I am a senior writer and editor over at Bright Hub too, but love Info Barrel as I can wake up in a morning and write about whatever I want. I love making subjects accessible and understandable to all, and of course it has to be interesting!
