My objective is to make an author, manuscript or publication shine.

Whether I am reading for grammar and style-guide protocols, planning content or refining a publication’s voice, editing is all about engaging a particular reader and keeping their attention.

Words, images, graphics and layout, and in case of online applications, functionality, must work together to appeal to the people you wish to reach.

I work in British and American English and with multiple style guides including the Associate Press Style Guide.
