My previous work was as a medical/sales representative. I started my own company and sold products on behalf of various health care companies. After 10 years I sold that business and have done various distance learning courses. They include magazine journalism, creative writing, web design, blogging, photography, social media and raw cuisine. I'm still trying to find my feet as a writer/blogger/social media user.

Meanwhile I have three blogs - 

Green Point Greenie - is a travel blog. It's a 'blog we like' on the Lonely Planet website. It consists of short posts with pics and information about places my husband and I have visited. I also share our travels aboard our Dutch steel motor cruiser. Our plan is to travel along the inland waterways of Europe until we can no longer afford it or cannot keep up.

Greenie Dresses for Less - is an eco-fashion blog. I show how to re-cycle and upcycle old clothes and even electrical cable into new fashion items. I also have easy sewing projects and free sewing patterns. It gets a mention every now and again in local and foreign magazines. And the odd post get's a flurry of Pinterest sharing. On a good day this blog reaches over 1600 hits.

Green and Vegan - is my newest baby and is a raw vegan food blog. My husband and I are opening an underground eatery at our home in Green Point where we plan to show just how tasty raw food can be. We have done Level One and Level Two Raw Cuisine at the Deliciously Raw school in Gloucester UK as well as some of the Matthew Kenney Culinary School on-line courses.
