UK Non-Fiction Proofreader & Historical Biographer

I’m an English editorial professional specialising in scholarly humanities journals. When I’m not proofing, I write historical biography about 18th-century opera and drama.

Hello there,

I’m an award-winning writer and editor, and an Entry-Level Member of the Chartered Institute of Editing and Proofreading. I started my career in newspaper journalism (Metro UK) but have since worked as an editor of both online and print magazines, and in digital communications, mainly in Higher Education. The alumni magazine I edit for Aston University won a Silver in the 2020 CASE Circle of Excellence Awards, and I’ve since served as a judge in the Magazine Improvement category.

I’m also a freelance proofreader with specialisms in History (especially the 18th century), Comparative Literature, Art, Theatre and Shakespeare. In my spare time I’m an historical biographer and Associate Fellow of the Royal Historical Society.
