Editors Canada Volunteer Participation
- Hamilton-Halton Twig (2017)
I love coaxing a good story to life. With nearly twenty years of professional storytelling experience as a documentary producer & video content creator, I bring the same skills to the written word as an editor.
Before becoming an editor, I was the lead script-writer/producer for an extreme weather documentary series which has aired on National Geographic and other national networks. Every day I was challenged with taking a complex scientific topic and making it easily enjoyed by non-scientists. My love of storytelling has led to a mild addiction to running blogs, with niche topics like homemade ice cream, artisanal beer, the local art scene, mental health, and the importance of girls studying STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts, and math). Between posting to blogs and editing scripts for television, I shuffle knee-deep in verbs and nouns with glee. I’m also a photographer, a musician, and an artist…all passions which require a keen eye for composition, pacing, and attention to detail. I also loved being a member of Toastmasters™, where the focus is not only on speech writing, but evaluation of delivery.
I'm eager to help you tell your story. I'm especially interested in working with fiction, creative non-fiction, cook books, DIY manuals, memoirs, family histories, scripts & screenplays, and marketing materials, but I'm open to exploring all topics. I also provide copy editing, proofreading, script & voiceover consulting, research, ghost writing, and re-writing services.
