I am an editor specialising in all things Academic in nature. I have a BIS in Publishing from the University of Pretoria and have been running an editing business, MT Editorial, in close conjunction with the Universities in South Africa since December 2015. My primary focus is assisting Masters/PhD candidates in finalising and polishing their Theses in an affordable and accessible way. I also work with local publishers in editing and proofreading novels of all kinds as well as magazine articles (focus on Veterinary Magazines).

My secondary focus is on Graphic Design and Photography, both of which I have certifications for, respectively. From general design to assisting local publishers in the layout and design of their magazines, I can assist with numerous projects.

My freelancing business, MT Editorial, is my sole source of income and hence I rely on it for 100% of my revenue. I do not have a permanent set of clients and rely rather on word of mouth by the students whom I have assisted.

I look forward to hearing from you and appreciate your consideration in regards to my application.
