For the duration of my working life, I have always sought to create the highest quality copy through attention to detail, consistency and a creative approach.
My professional experience includes working on the interface between independent publishing and cultural foundations, coordinating an online multimedia library for the environmental humanities, and conducting and supervising market research among some of the world’s leading providers of legal services.
Other areas of experience include copy editing texts for innovative book projects, grant applications, conference readers, company reports and promotional copy for corporate law firms, as well as the use of various content management systems (Drupal, WordPress, etc.).
