A diligent and meticulous Proof Reader with 20 years’ experience in ensuring flawless copy and artwork for print and digital campaigns.

My eye for imperfections and inconsistencies in spelling, grammar, punctuation and formatting has been honed in direct marketing agencies in London and Toronto.

My most recent contract has been with the IPA. As a professional body committed to promoting best practice in the advertising industry, the IPA could not tolerate any mistakes in its own
material, particularly in its flagship professional development courses. I ensured the material for these qualifications was correct, consistent and clear.

I am happy to work with established agency guidelines/house styles or to draft from scratch if necessary. Either way, I work quickly and accurately, to deadline and to budget, without ever losing sight of the brand, the objective - or that crafty little typo others might miss.

• strong command of English language spelling, grammar and punctuation
