Service Description

After a long and successful career as a newspaper journalist, I joined the Australian Public Service to write media releases and ministerial speeches, then a major non-profit organisation as an online content writer and editor.

My writing, editing and proofreading skills are second to none and I can supply references and testimonials to this effect on request.
