Senior Editor

McBeth Media

April, 2009 – Present (over 7 years)

Since 2009 I have worked at this wonderful niche publishing company, in which time I have advanced from Editorial Intern to Senior Editor. Whilst working in the Toronto office, my day-to-day schedule included taking raw manuscripts through all structural edits and consistency checks and working with designers and freelancers to bring both print and ebook manuscripts to publishing standard. I have also written Advance Information statements and cover copy on a regular basis. Other responsibilities included organizing author tours, working with authors throughout all stages of editorial and publication, scouting new authors, copywriting, promotion of published works and management of social media.

I currently work as the Freelance Senior Editor and continue to enjoy my career with such a fantastic and ethical company.

Writer

Self Employed

June, 2005 – Present (over 11 years)

I have worked in print and online media for over a decade, and whilst much of my earlier writing was around music and sports, I currently write on a range of topics from technology and privacy to literature, food and travel. I also write fiction in a number of formats, including short stories, scripts and graphic novels.

I've worked in a range of subjects aimed at different audiences, so both my writing and editing styles are very adaptable. I pride myself on the quality of my work and the accessibility of my writing style.
