Writing and editing
I have more than two decades of experience providing clear, concise, accessible writing for a wide variety of audiences, both in print and online. I also provide a wide range of editing services, including:

  • Substantive editing (reviewing and commenting upon written materials with an eye to the organization and flow of the writing; re-working of material if required and agreed to)
  • Copy editing (checking for readability, grammatical errors, style issues, and accuracy of graphics and charts)
  • Proofreading (final checks for typos, spelling errors, layout errors and so on)

Computer/technical skills
Having worked in print and online media, as well as in educational software development, I can draw on the following skills when it comes to work projects:

  • Extensive experience with the Microsoft Office suite (Word, Excel, PowerPoint)
  • Working knowledge of Photoshop, InDesign, Acrobat, FileMaker, markdown clients (e.g., Byword, Typora, BBEdit), and various FTP clients
  • Working knowledge of ebook production, HTML, and website content management systems (e.g., WordPress)
  • Knowledge of the Canadian Press Stylebook, the Chicago Manual of Style, and the Microsoft Manual of Style for Technical Publications
