Hire me and you hire a writing partner who brings experience from well-known names, including Greenpeace, Oxfam, Philips, and the United Nations Development Programme. Work with me, and your purpose becomes my purpose.

to discuss your writing project.

My last two nicknames were "the glue" and "the caterpillar". I'll tell you why when we talk.

My objective writing and copy-editing can help improve your funding chances, efficiency, and reader experience.

Not sure whether to "publish" or "send"?

If you are working on a website, or about to submit a life-changing document, like a CV or a PhD thesis, my eyes and editing skills can help make sure your content is error-free, a smooth read, and good to go. I also make a habit of giving feedback. UK & US English are both possible. Hire me for:

Excellent writing skills and massive powers of diplomacy.
