Hey, I'm Michelle (but call me Shelly). I'm a food stylist, photographer, and recipe developer. I am also the creator of the meat-free blog Vegetarian 'Ventures and one of the founders of Driftless Magazine. I am currently based in Bloomington, Indiana.

When I'm not getting creative in the kitchen or on an adventure with my camera then you can find me with friends at local music shows or lounging around with my boxer pup, Tuko.

I've had content featured in publications such as Chickpea Magazine, Who's Hungry?, Metal Magazine, Vegetarian Living, Weekend Almanac Drifltess Magazine, and Remedy Quarterly. I've also had recipes and articles featured on websites such as Food & Wine, Pure Green Magazine, The Kitchn, Food52Foodgawker, Sheknows, Saveur MagazineKitchen Daily, Daily CandyBabbleFinding Vegan, Taste Spotting, Tasteologie, Buzzfeed, Huffington Post, and many others. A few brands I've partnered with have include Crate & Barrel, Urban Outfitters, Instagram, Green Giant, Planet Shoes, and many others.

I am currently accepting new clients for freelance and contract-based recipe development and editorial writing. Feel free to get in touch through Vegetarian 'Ventures or via vegetarianventures@gmail.com with your idea, timeline, and budget or to request a rate card.

Thanks for stopping by!
