Christina is the Adelaide-based blogger behind The Hungry Australian (http://hungryaustralian.com/), a food and travel blog that was one of only five finalists in the lifestyle category of last year's Best Australian Blogs competition (https://australianwriterscentre.worldsecuresystems.com/bloggingcomp/2013competition.html). She also won the competition's Outstanding Use of Photography Award for her post Exploring Dubai: Spices, Diamonds, Gold and Fruit & Vegetables (http://hungryaustralian.com/2012/12/exploring-dubai-spices-diamonds-gold-fruit-vegetables).
Christina began her blog in mid 2011 as an outlet for her writing. She never imagined that her blog would lead to her new career as a freelance recipe developer, writer, photographer, food stylist, consultant and blogger. She loves the variety of her job!
