Proofreading and Editing

Before setting myself free to go sailing I worked in the publishing industry for 20+ years.

These days, I’m a digital nomad. I write about my personal sailing and traveling adventures here on SailingTravelBlog.com.

I also provide freelance copywriting, editing and proofreading. When I’m not sailing on the high seas or exploring the back streets of South East Asia, that is.

Feel free to check out my LinkedIn profile.


Operating from my floating virtual office I provide quality, easy to read copywriting services.

Here are some examples of the copywriting, proofreading and editing projects I’ve completed lately:

  • Ongoing editing and proofreading for ExpertEditor.com.au. Assignments include academic theses, fiction books and research reports. (Some by authors with English as a second language.)
  • Writing SEO web page content for an artist, a crane hire business and a creative services agency.
  • Editing a 50 page IT services capabilities document written by various technical experts. I aligned the different styles and created a sense of fun and user friendliness.
  • Various capability statements and bios. My clients often tell me I make them sound awesome.
