I'm Grace—a multimedia journalist with a focus on food and lifestyle. As Real Simple magazine's digital associate food editor, I develop original recipes and photograph them for, as well as pitch, research, and write original food content for the website and newsletters. I also work closely with the magazine’s video director to brainstorm and execute new food videos, and have hosted a number of the brand’s Facebook Live videos. I also create recipes, write blog posts, and take photographs for double thyme, the vegetarian food blog I created with my twin sister. 

Before joining the Real Simple staff, I worked on the digital team at Cooking Light, where I helped grow the brand’s social media presence and hosted on-camera food videos. 

I have experience writing, editing, photographing, and researching for both print and online publications, and I am skilled in content production, social media strategy and execution, SEO optimization, and on-screen video hosting. I worked as the talent and food stylist in the video below, which has received more than 2.1 million views on Facebook and is one of the most successful Cooking Light videos to date.
