Profile

I'm happy to use my 15 years experience editing technical, academic and CNF texts to help my clients achieve their goals.

Although it is ideal to have someone else read your work, it is not always possible due to time and other constraints. My objective is that my clients become aware of the issues I point out and learn how to deal with them on their own, so that eventually they can edit their own work without or with minimal external help.
