Overview

Originally from the US, I’ve spent the majority of my working life in the UK, starting as a non-fiction commissioning editor in book publishing. Going freelance, I initially worked for publishers, but was soon asked to be an editorial consultant for Channel 4 Television, part of a team that produced ‘back-up’ for television programmes – first, in print, then online. In addition, I was editor of the Channel 4 History website for seven years.

More recently, I’ve been a freelance contractor for the (UK) Department for International Development, and deputy managing editor for BeGrand.net – a government-funded website for grandparents. I’ve also done quite a bit of copywriting for the English Heritage website.

In addition, I teach two courses, which I co-created, on writing and editing for the web – one for the Publishing Training Centre and the other for the Society for Editors and Proofreaders. I am an advanced member of the latter and was its internet director for eight years. I’ve recently expanded my teaching to include half-day seminars for the University of the Arts London (in-house) and Kingston University.

On a personal level, I’m increasingly involved with the local community in my part of west London. Previously I was on the executive of the Acton Business Forum, and I event-managed the Acton Christmas Fair. I’m currently a trustee of the Acton Community Forum.
