Service Description

Professional, hard-working and focused, I take pride in every project I undertake. I believe in honest communication with the client from the very beginning, to generate a good working relationship and deliver the very best end product possible.

I have several years experience working with various clients on a long-term basis, a testament to my commitment and reliability. I also work with clients on short-term or immediate projects, and have undertaken everything from proof-reading to editing, translation, subtitling and original web or sales copy in the past.

I can offer services that cover a wide range of topics, and have a particular focus on the real estate and travel industry.

Travel is my way of life, and I rarely stay in one location for more than a few months at a time. I use my travel experiences to produce interesting and informative accounts for travel blogs, English language newspapers and city guides.

I have finally taken the leap into freelance writing and editing as a full-time profession, and often turn personal experience and travel journals into engaging and informative travel articles.

I spent four years working in the online marketing sector, so am fully web literate, with a solid understanding of social media and current internet trends.
