I'm a copy editor, stylistic editor and proofreader of fiction, technical writing and niche writing. I have over 3 years of experience in music journalism, and online/digital and fiction publishing sectors. My other strengths include production editing and strategy.

I want to take you and your work on an adventure to find your own voice that will create an unshakable bond between you and your readers.

I have received the Editing Certificate from George Brown College in December 2018. I have won Camp NaNoWriMo 2017 for writing a Victorian-times adventure/horror story. I am contributing to Blood & Bourbon literary magazine as an editor and a writer of short stories and reviews. Prior to that I have been a department editor for The Scene Magazine for over two year. I have also provided my skills as a technical translator (English to Russian) to IRIS Power engineering firm.

My interests include fiction, music and music history, tarot and divination, calligraphy, ballet and highland dancing, yoga and meditation.
