About Me

I edit and proofread essays, theses, articles for publication, websites and promotional material, and nonfiction and fiction manuscripts.

I enjoy the collaborative effort of making your work the very best it can be.

Primarily foreign students and non-native speakers of English: Rather than just correcting your errors (if you wish), I will make notes explaining why I made the correction and will provide you with a list of your most common errors, in order to help you improve your writing. I’m supportive until the very end, and love being asked questions. I am also available for Skype consultations and/or tutoring.

In terms of academic editing, I focus on the Humanities, and am comfortable editing for MLA, APA, and Chicago style.

I will also edit for Australian, Canadian, or US spelling and usage.

My background:

I graduated (Honors, English) from the University of Queensland, Australia, and am a freelance writer who has been published in a variety of contexts, from commercial magazines to academic and literary journals.

I am also the author of several books of poetry. You can have a look at my books and read some of my published work here.

I was born in Australia, lived in Canada for ten years, and these days I spend quite a bit of time in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. I’m always online, and I work with people from all over the world.
