Profile

Leverage my expertise to produce excellent business materials, and your clients will be compelled to read your content to the very end.

I edit and write business, investment, and compliance and regulation materials that are clear, correct, concise, consistent, and — when appropriate — chirpy. Business isn't boring, so business writing shouldn't be, either!

Let me help you with financial reports, white papers, news articles, portfolio-manager commentaries, management reports of fund performance (MRFPs), fund facts, and more.

I'm dependable, flexible, diligent, and prompt. Clients say I make their lives easier. I've never missed a deadline, and I'm easily reached by email and phone.

That's what you need to know; here's what you may want to know:

*I'm an award-winning recipient of Ryerson's Certificate in Publishing.

*Copy editing and writing are my specialties, but when it comes to communication, I'm up for anything.

*I'm an avid lifelong learner, and I welcome the opportunity to work on a variety of projects in diverse fields.

*My clients include Rogers Media, TC Media, Firefly Books, and Far & Wide Collective.

*I've worked on print and online business magazines, entrepreneurial manuals, web content, trade non-fiction, and academic content.

*I edit and write for a wide range of audiences, including readers who have English as a second language.

*I have a Bachelor of Technology in Nautical Sciences and have previously worked as a marine engineering officer. I also majored in Consumer Studies, with over three years completed.

*I'm seminars chair for Editors Toronto, and I'm a blogger and copy editor for BoldFace, the blog of Editors Toronto.

*As sponsorship coordinator for Editors Canada's 2014 conference and 2015 international conference, I identified and secured private and public funds to help finance the association's annual event — achieving a record in 2015 for funds raised.

Hire me if you're looking for excellence in communication.
