Hi, my name is: Monica Shaw. I'm a writer and web consultant with a penchant for food.

As a freelance writer, I write frequently about food, marketing, business and social media for publications such as The Daily Telegraph, Chef Magazine, Food Magazine and The Writer. I'm a member of the Guild of Food Writers and also write a successful health and fitness blog at smarterfitter.com.

As a web and social media consultant, I work mainly with chefs, restaurateurs, food brands and other food writers to help them use the internet to improve their businesses. With an MSc in applied mathematics and research experience in statistics, my main focus is on analytics. I love data, and I use it as much as possible to solve problems and prove that the solutions actually work. You can learn more about my webby work at monicashaw.com.

I live, work, write, cook, eat, and play from a converted barn in the Wiltshire countryside.
