I am a freelance writer and an editor for a sports website and enjoy website design in my spare time. Currently, I am enrolled in a continuing studies program to obtain a certificate in Digital Design.

A natural copy editor, I have a great love for reading, writing and words in general. I possess a keen eagle's eye and am extremely dedicated and hardworking. I have had nearly 14 years of experience in editorial and never find a dull moment in the field.

I am seeking freelance positions in copy editing and proofreading (though I prefer copy editing).
