QUALIFICATIONS & EXPERIENCE
An experienced professional proofreader and copy-editor, I trained with the Publishing Training Centre (Basic Proofreading by Distance Learning – Distinction), am a Professional Member of the Society for Editors and Proofreaders (SfEP), and have worked on over 60 books to date, covering a wide range of subject matter, for both trade and academic publishers.
I can proofread onscreen or on paper, blind or against copy, using the BSI proof correction symbols, the Track Changes function in Word, or PDF markup.
I have an MA in Film & Television (Distinction) from the University of Westminster and, in the past, have worked in a range of administrative roles in both theatre and film.
I contributed a chapter to The Cinema of Italy (Columbia University Press, 2004) and currently write regularly on opera for the Curzon Cinemas magazine.
Passionate about words and helping people communicate better through language, I actually find grammar exciting and am the kind of person who punctuates even their text messages.
