Profile

I provide freelance editorial services for just about any purpose, from business communications to marketing copy and web content, and from magazine articles to short stories and novels. My passion is bringing narratives and other content to life by making seamless adjustments that let the author’s voice and vision shine through. 

I've received a postgrad certificate in Publishing from Ryerson University, and a bachelor degree in English and Philosophy from University of Toronto. My start in publishing was editing and project managing for Firefly Books in Richmond Hill, Ontario.

My most common methods of mark-up are with Acrobat and Word; I offer structural, line and copy editing, content writing, manuscript evaluation, proofreading and localisation. Other services include fact-checking, project managing, consulting, image research and advisement for self-publishing.
