Overview

I hold a Masters in English Literature and have over four years of editing experience. I also have worked on web content writing in the NGO sector and written articles on travel and food for various publications.

I work quickly and efficiently, with a keen eye for diction, grammar, and the overall logical flow of a piece of writing.

An expatriate currently living in Malaysia with previous stints in England, Egypt, and Norway, I bring a global perspective and cross-cultural understanding to the table.
