I am a freelance editor. I have 14 yearsí experience in writing, editing, proofreading and graphic design.
From January 2005 to October 2009 I was the Operations Manager at a communications consultancy where I supervised and participated in the entire process of researching, writing, testing and designing books, brochures, manuals, newsletters and posters. I was also the final proofreader before going to press.
I edited manuals for the microfinance sector, and for the education sector on running successful polytechnics. I proofread and edited magazines, books and reports on political activism, the coffee sector, the horticultural sector, urban development, the environment, and internal systems and processes of international non-governmental organizations.
Currently Iím involved in writing a literary autobiography of a bishop of the Catholic Church. My role is mostly transcribing audio files and editing.
I have good computer skills in Microsoft Office Word, Excel, Access, Powerpoint; and design packages such as CorelDraw, Adobe Photoshop, Indesign and Illustrator.
I would have no problem with documents submitted in these, or Adobe PDF.
