Overview

I am looking to use my editing and proofreading skills with fiction and non-fiction material. I have an English Lit degree, a background in meditation and spirituality, a love for reading and editing and years of work/life experience.

I've been working in ELT publishing since 2000 and as a freelance editor/content provider since 2011. Before that, I taught ESL for 10 years in three countries -- Nepal, South Korea and the USA. I'm presently enjoying a life in Hong Kong. :-)
