Profession:Writer, Proofreader, Researcher, Script Writer, Copyeditor


I have an enquiring mind that I refined as a journalist and honed whilst travelling the world. I fulfilled a lifelong dream to study animal science; and then combined excellent writing skills with my animal obsession by writing and researching wildlife documentaries and series for television. I work remotely most of the time so am able to work on projects both locally and internationally. Time of day or night are rarely an issue for me - I work according to each teams needs and requirements. I have a natural  interest in many subjects so am not limited to wildlife - I love what I do no matter the genre. I also do structural and stylistic copy editing (on film scripts, books or articles) - little bit of a grammar perfectionist. However research is my major skill and I am undaunted when faced with facts, articles or scripts that need checking and fine tuning ...and I eat deadlines for breakfast.
