I studied Arabic at both the University of London and University of Jordan, before taking up a position as a sports writer/ editor for a daily newspaper in the Middle East. I gained a great deal of experience as a proofreader working for a number of other English publications within the Gulf region. I was also contracted by several businesses to proofread press releases before circulation.
I have now returned to my native country, Australia, where I work as a freelance writer/ proofreader. I am currently in the process of writing my first book - about the joys of working in tough rural environments, with some of the most hilariously unrefined characters I have ever known - which should be completed by late 2011.
