A seasoned researcher-writer and proof reader, with experience in creating content for factual television programming as well as print and online material, I excel at finding, editing and presenting good quality information, whatever the subject matter.
I have a degree in Journalism and Media Studies, which helped me to forge a successful career as a current affairs, archival and documentary researcher and assistant producer in both South Africa and the UK. Although my career is currently more focused on publishing and academic proofreading, I do still enjoy taking on TV or documentary research projects. In recent years, I have worked mainly on human interest and educational programmes for the Japanese market.
Since moving to the UK in 2001, where I lived, worked and studied for 15+ years, I have developed a successful writing and proofreading practice, providing a range of content for both online and print media on behalf of clients from around the globe, including Australia, America, Nigeria, the Netherlands and Sweden. Although I have good general knowledge and am extremely versatile, I have specialist experience in the health and technical marketing fields, having worked for both the Royal College of General Practioners and in the field of dental PR.
More recently, I have worked with a business coach and several charities, including the Urania Trust and The Aspinall Foundation, to write and publish a number of non-fiction books. Currently, I am in the process of preparing my own book for publication with financial assistance from the Urania Trust. See my news page for more details.
