Currently I am working on writing a series of twelve non-fiction books for Igloo Books that are scheduled to publish in 2020.

Editor

Elwin Street Productions
June, 2018 – August, 2018 (2 months)

This was a temporary position that the company needed filling during a particularly busy period for them. My role as Editor included working on their new titles, acquisitions and backlist titles. My tasks were numerous in this position, including sourcing and commissioning authors and illustrators, proofreading manuscripts, writing copy and captions, editing manuscripts and creating presentations.

Senior Production Editor

Bloomsbury Publishing Plc
March, 2018 – May, 2018 (2 months)

I was given this promotion due to my experience and knowledge of text design and for taking on the responsibility of a large project creating text design templates for Bloomsbury, in addition to my usual tasks and responsibilities mentioned below.

Production Editor

Bloomsbury Publishing Plc
May, 2015 – February, 2018 (almost 3 years)

A role in which I managed numerous demanding front list titles, taking books from their un-copyedited and un-proofread manuscript form to the final print-ready files, including briefing illustrators and freelance designers to create bespoke and creative designs. Producing 40 plus titles a year, it was essential for me to have a proactive attitude and diligent organisation and communication skills to ensure that each book conformed to the house style, was proofread and copyedited to a consistently high standard and published on schedule and within budget whilst still creating a beautiful product.

Lighting for Cinematography (The CineTech Guides to the Film Crafts)

David Landau

We can't shoot good pictures without good lighting, no matter how good the newest cameras are. Shooting under available light gives exposure, but lacks depth, contrast, contour, atmosphere and often separation. The story could be the greatest in the world, but if the lighting is poor viewers will assume it's amateurish and not take it seriously. Feature films and TV shows, commercials and indu... read more
