As well as holding a BA (Hons) in English and Journalism from the University of Salford and a graduate certificate in book and magazine publishing from Columbia University, I have worked in publishing for over a decade. I earned my stripes in the editorial and production departments of D&M Publishers Inc., formerly Canada's largest independent book publisher, and have continuously provided freelance editorial services since that time.
I am experienced in editing and proofreading fiction and non-fiction books, business reports, marketing materials, magazine articles, and museum displays.
I have worked as a copywriter, content manager, and copy editor for an entertainment provider with materials published on global MSN sites.
I also project management, copy editing, and writing tasks for Perfect Daily Grind, a leading coffee publication with a global audience.
My international background means that I am particularly skilled at translating between different global Englishes and am adept at recognising the often-overlooked differences between specific markets. I have demonstrable experience of adapting British books to the US market and adapting materials produced in North America for a UK audience.
