Profile

As a freelance editor I offer a wide variety of professional editorial services including copyediting, proofreading, and structural editing. I also run Galley Creative Co. with my wife, Sarah. We specialize in helping clients develop their book-length projects from manuscript to finished product. An experienced graphic designer, Sarah handles the visuals—and as an editor, I handle the text!

I bring a lifelong passion for literature and the written word to each of my projects, as well as experience from many different facets of the literary world. I have been a bookseller, a coffeehouse proprietor, a self-published author, and even a house painter; but throughout it all, I have found opportunities to hone and develop my skills as an editor.

I currently sit on the Board of Directors for the Winnipeg International Writers Festival, which has allowed me to have a finger on the pulse of the exciting world of Canadian literature. I hold a BA in English, Mathematics, and Theology from Canadian Mennonite University, and am the author of "The Strong Badger," a quirky urban fantasy novel.

Some of my personal interests include social and political justice, small businesses, Christian spirituality, music (especially the bass), and aviation.

Whether a novel, a nonfiction work, an academic publication, or an annual report, it would be my honour and privilege to work with you on your next project.
