Overview

With nearly one and a half decade's experience, I offer copy-editing, proofreading and writing to publishers, businesses and individuals who want their text to be as good as it can and should be.

Over the years, I have had the pleasure of working with international publishers, businesses and authors, taking on anything from books and journal manuscripts, B2B magazines and press releases, to website copy and even high-profile events invitations for a variety of clients from different backgrounds.

My experience covers a wide range of non-fiction, largely scientific subjects for academic books, essays and articles — from all the gory details of Medicine and Dentistry, to Quantum Mechanics and Schrödinger’s cat, to Humanities and English literature.
