I have 36 years’ experience in the printing and publishing industry, including ten years at a global publishing house when I quality checked every document that left the office.

Current clients include the foremost US multinational technological corporation, the British Council, King’s College London, One Education and Kirklees Council.

My grounding in print, which includes typography and layout, means that I am well placed to cast a critical and sympathetic eye over manuscripts, ensuring that text not only makes sense and is grammatically correct, but that it looks the business.

I meticulously proofread text ranging from books, abstracts and website content to maps, internal communications and indices.

Specialisms
