About Me and My Work
Hi, my name is Andy H. Thank you for visiting my profile page, I appreciate your time.
I edit and proofread on-screen using MS Word's Track Changes tool. I can use other office suites such as OpenOffice or LibreOffice when preferred. I also do total rewrites of documents on request.
Although I have only just started to bid for jobs on PPH, I'm not new to this line of work. I have been proofreading, editing and rewriting content - fulltime - for over four years now. Before that I was a web publisher running and maintaining over 30 projects.
Area of Expertise
My areas of expertise include, but are not limited to, websites, blog content and eBooks. I particularly enjoy rewriting poorly written content from scratch. I also edit and proofread documents created by non-native speakers of English. I can reformat documents so that the work flows better and is more presentable and easier on the eye.
Other File Formats:
I can also provide customers with documents in any of the following file formats:
- EPUB: Supported by most major Smartphones and e-readers.
- MOBI: Formats suited for smaller screens.
- DOCX: MS Word document format.
- PDF: Universal portable document format (usable on most OS).
- AZW3: Specifically for the Kindle eBook readers.
- ODT: An open source word processor file format.
My Career Path
Before proofreading and web publishing I worked as an IT support technician. This was a fulltime role that lasted for about four years. Prior to that I taught English language skills to foreign students in South East Asia. I did this for just over three years. The main focus was on teaching conversational fluency, reading comprehension, and business presentation skills.
I'm a stickler when it comes to good contact. That means I answer all communications in a prompt and thorough manner, without exception. If you have any questions, a potential job offer, or just want to test me out, please get in touch.

The document I needed Andy to rewrite was quite technical and very long (12,000+ words) and badly written. He did an AMAZING job at sorting the content out and I am thrilled with the result. Throughout the job Andy kept me up to date regularly with his progress and was very helpful and efficient. I can highly recommend Andy if you need content rewritten and reformatted.
Thank you so much Chl0e, I couldn't have asked for a better first review ;)
The job was quite a challenge, which is what I love. I enjoyed improving the readability and flow of the text and reformatting the entire file. I'm happy that you're happy, which is the name of this game.
