Overview

I have over 10 years experience as a project editor and have worked at Phaidon Press, Laurence King and Pavilion Books on a range of visually stunning design, arts and interiors books. I can manage all aspects of a book's development, from manuscript to proofs, including scheduling and budgeting, managing a team of authors and designers, organising photographic shoots or picture research, and well as practical keying in and proofreading.

I believe in the joy of books, and working together as a team to produce something that is special is a key factor to me. Each book and each author is very different and I treat each as a unique process and journey.
My aim is to to help the team in any way I can to make a dynamic finished product that is the best it can be.
