About me:

Since graduating I have gained a wealth of experience in sub-editing and proofreading.

This has included sub-editing news and features on national security, transport and technology for various online and print publications, and publishing annual titles in hard copy.


I studied English and Media and Cultural Studies at Nottingham Trent University between 1995 and 1998, then followed up with an MA in Writing from 1998 to 2000.


My most recent role was as a Content Editor at Janes, from November 2012 to April 2021. My responsibilities were: 

  • Editing news and reference material, both online and hard copy, on titles including Janes Defence Weekly, World Railways and Land Warfare Platforms.
  • Chasing additional copy from authors and any missing images or photos.
  • Querying issues relating to articles and features, such as table information, text inconsistencies and quotations.
  •  Juggling various projects and working to tight deadlines.
