Travel, arts, culture and academic


Have you…
--drafted a novel?
--completed a PhD thesis?
--outlined a memoir?
--got a good idea for a non-fiction book but don’t know where to begin, how to proceed, or whether your concept is solid?
--started or finished some other kind of writing project but need a second opinion on structure or tone, a sharp eye to fix lingering errors, or an overall manuscript assessment?

As an editor specialising in travel, culture and arts writing, I provide a range of editorial services for beginner writers, working professionals, businesses and academic specialists.

Currently based in New Zealand, I have lived, worked, studied, and traveled all around the world, including the UK, Czech Republic, Japan, Australia, Nepal, and USA. My personal interests are trekking in the mountains, good literature, popular and fine arts, and the intersections between traditional practices and contemporary life, all of which are reflected in my body of work writing work. If your personal and professional interests intersect with mine, you can be sure I’ll bring my passion and precision to your project.

Whether you’re seeking a developmental editor for a travel memoir or a proofreader for your humanities academic thesis, or something in between, I deliver.
