In 2003, I was 20 years old and working as a library clerk at major daily newspaper The Edmonton Sun when an editor took note of my blue hair and leather jacket and asked if I wanted to write about bands.
I wound up with a long-running weekly music column, penning features and reviewing records and shows. Today, I’m a full-time freelance writer and editor.
During my 14 years as a writer I’ve honed my abilities and become an expert at putting together feature stories, writing well-thought-out reviews, and conducting interviews. My career has afforded me some memorable moments, including a long telephone chat with Peter Noone of Herman’s Hermits (a childhood favourite), reviewing a music festival at CBGB, and having a girly sleepover in one of Canada’s most haunted places which also happens to be a death-row jail cell.
My areas of expertise have grown, and nowadays I specialize in travel, lifestyle, and business. My home base in Vancouver, and I travel frequently worldwide.
I completed an editorial internship with Venture Publishing in 2011, working on business magazine Alberta Venture and the company’s large portfolio of contract magazines. Since then I’ve primarily worked as a freelance editor, completing over 4,500 projects for a client base that stretches across the globe.
I’ve produced content and copy for a wide variety of clients, including:
My articles have been published by dozens of media outlets, including:
After completing an editorial internship with business magazine Alberta Venture in 2011, I went on to freelance as a well-rounded editor specializing in copy editing and proofreading. Today, I’m a top-rated editor on Fiverr, with 99.5 percent positive feedback and nearly 5,000 orders delivered since 2013. My editing service even earned me a mention in Time magazine.
I’m highly experienced in all kinds of editing work, and have completed projects ranging from rewording website content for international companies into native-level English, to editing novels from start to finish, to polishing blog posts and business content. I love working with new clients, so please get in touch with me to discuss your project.
