I pride myself on my attention to detail, thorough knowledge of both UK and US grammar and style (most notably The Oxford Guide to Style, The Chicago Manual of Style, and The Associated Press Stylebook), familiarity with the production process, respect for deadlines, and respectful communication with authors.
Speciality subject areas for writing commissions include the performing arts, food and cookery, travel, literature, and film.
In my full-time and freelance experience as an editor, I have amassed a long list of clients impressed by my ability to turn rough text into polished prose.
