Overview

Hi! I am a digital publishing specialist skilled in web design, ebook development, and print typesetting.

I work with clients across the spectrum: from commercial to literary writing, from coding to editing, from the greenest indie author to the biggest commercial press. My previous clients or employers include Canelo Digital Publishing, Faber & Faber, And Other Stories, Scribe Publications, and Tilted Axis Press.

I relish a challenge and am always keen to talk about projects where I can make a difference.
