Proofreading/Editing Experience and Qualifications

I thoroughly enjoy my role as an editor and I hard work to elicit the essence and vitality contained within each manuscript I'm handed, maintaining the author's distinctive voice, drawing on its strengths and refining the clarity of argument.

Over the past year I've worked extensively as a Senior Editor and Ghost Writer on several books prior to their publication. These non-fiction (both academic and non-academic) manuscripts were rooted in Eastern philosophy and wisdom traditions, art history, cultural studies, education, personal development, and sustainable business.

I'm also an editor for a non-profit educational organisation that delivers monthly Bhakti-yoga philosophy and meditation courses to incarcerated inmates throughout the US.

Aside from other ongoing freelance work in the areas of Anthropology, Education and Eastern Philosophy, my editorial, proofreading and transcribing experience also includes internships with HarperCollins and Gaudiya Vedanta Publications. My work with Gaudiya Vedanta Publications involved transcribing, proofreading and editing work by non-native English speakers. 

My language skills have also been put to extensive use as a pre-university Anthropolgy tutor, and as an English teacher in China. As such, I'm comfortable working with a range of education and language levels.

I'm a professional editor, writer, proofreader and poet, with a broad range of cultural and academic interests and experiences.

As an experienced editor on both academic essays and larger publications, I'd be thrilled to help guide your writing into fulfilling its highest potential.
