I am a professional writer with more than 10 years experience in research, writing, editing and proofreading across a range of sectors including journalism, education, academia, and charities/non-profits.

I have researched, written, edited or proofread academic journal articles, theses, technical manuals, press releases, reports, feature articles, web site content, promotional material, policy papers and grant proposals.
