I run my own business as a proofreader based in Moseley, Birmingham. Having worked for most of my life as a performing classical musician, I started proofreading music for a major publisher in London some 20 years ago and more recently I have branched out into proofreading text.

The types of text I have worked on include novels, academic work, PhD theses, memoirs and websites. In addition to these I offer proofreading and editing services for businesses, magazines, newspapers and students.

Although my specialist subject is music, I have a great interest in fiction, history, spirituality, psychology, philosophy, theatre, film, television, travel and cookery.

I have a professional qualification from the Publishing Training Centre, having gained a distinction in their ‘Essential Proofreading’ course. This course is highly regarded as it trains proofreaders to rigorous standards.
