Proofreading/Editing Experience and Qualifications

I have always had a knack for picking out inconsistencies and errors.  Because of this, I eventually found myself managing contracts at Warner Bros., a role that required exceptional attention to detail since minor mistakes could have had massive consequences.  So, in short, copy editing and proofreading are a natural fit for me.  Since I began freelancing in 2013, the vast majority of my work has been on doctoral theses, journal articles and research grant/funding proposals, and I am pleased to say that all of my clients' endeavours have been successful.  Although I have my degrees in anthropology and psychology, as of late, I have primarily been copy editing and proofreading arts and computing theses/papers/proposals, and I am confident that I can also tackle other disciplines and non-academic works.  Although I have a stong interest in written works and literature, I have also been doing freelance video editing, which is my true passion (in particular, factual content that focuses on the human experience). 

Services

I do copy editing and proofreading combined.  I feel that it would be a disservice to my clients to only point out minor errors (proofreading) and not mention glaring inaccurracies and inconsistencies (copy editing). 

Personal Message

I am currently living in Geneva, Switzerland. Since I have lived and studied in both the United States and the United Kingdom, I can copy edit/proofread works that require special attention to either American or British grammar/syntax/spelling. Besides being a copy editor/proofreader, I am also a video editor and an avid traveler. My motto is that there is no point in doing something unless it is done right.

Pricing Info

Approximately 18-25€ per 1,000 words for both copy editing and proofreading combined (to be confirmed upon receipt of a writing sample)
