Specific projects

Experienced in working by remote (phone, fax, email or FTP). I have been a professional editor since 1988. My career began at Commonwealth Hansard, where I edited the transcripts of parliament and its committees, as well as departmental documents. For the past ten years I’ve been freelance editing, assisting academic publishers, commercial editing services, peak community organisations and individual clients with their diverse and challenging projects.
