I’m a bibliophile at heart and enjoy reading a variety of works, both fiction and non-fiction. I have a strong publishing background and understanding of all the commissioning and production functions required to publish titles ensuring quality, efficiency and best value. I enjoy thinking critically about a project and using analytical skills to solve problems and identify patterns. I have an ability to plan a variety of projects and work to strict deadlines. I work well in a team, as well as independently. I love the editorial and proofreading process of projects most of all.
I was employed by Macmillan Education South Africa as a Publisher as well as a Digital Publisher over a period of nine years. More recently, I have been freelancing by editing and proofreading, including work on masters and doctoral theses.I have also diversified and have been working as the Communications Specialist for a Security Company for the last few months, compiling and writing up to 30 weekly individualised newsletters for all areas of operation as well as social media management in a contract position over the last few months.
