I am a self-confessed word nerd – I itch to fix typos on restaurant menus and would never dream of sending a Whatsapp without punctuation!

I have been working as a copy editor and managing editor on a mixture of magazines and educational content for 15 years. I have worked at Media 24 Africa, International Colleges Group, Highbury Media and – most recently – Getsmarter, where I headed up the editing team.

I love fact-checking, polishing and proofreading until a piece is perfect. I can wrap my head around just about any topic, but I particularly enjoy lifestyle content – especially food and cookery. I also love to write about food and have done so for magazines such as EquinoxLivingspace and Fancourt.
