Ashley Strickland Freeman - Editor

Fort Pierce, FL

Overview

I offer a unique perspective to the editorial world. As a freelance author, editor, food stylist, and recipe developer with over 11 years of experience, I understand the editorial process from all angles and know what it takes to make publications succeed.

Prior to my current position, I was an Editor with Oxmoor House (a division of Time Inc.) and worked in the Oxmoor House Test Kitchens developing, testing, and styling recipes for Southern Living Magazine, Cooking Light Magazine, Coastal Living Magazine, Weight Watchers, Betty Crocker, and Pillsbury. I have written stories and provided food styling on location all around the United States and am happy to travel for shoots and articles. I have worked with noted chefs such as Anthony Bourdain, Charlie Trotter, Tyler Florence, Giuliano Hazan, and Frank Stitt. I also apprenticed for Nathalie Dupree and tested recipes for Earl Hiers's book, Uncle Bubba's Savannah Seafood.
