I am a native British English speaker with more than 20 years' experience of

writing and editing for British

and American audiences.

After completing my academic education I went on to a successful career as a university lecturer in the humanities and social sciences.


My work increasingly drew me into writing, editing and translation, until in 2007 I surrendered to my inner word nerd and retrained as a professional editor and linguist.


I have been offering freelance services since 2008.
