Diligent, Meticulous and Ethical. That is how most customers have described me. I specialize in academic, literary writing and editing, book editing and proofreading with the ability to provide you with my strong research skills to give your copy the credibility it deserves. I also publish blog, on-line articles and short stories while working on two manuscripts which will be submitted to the publishers later. Current work includes manuscript assessments, article-rewriting, on-line tutoring for undergraduates in English and Literature. I have a BA in Languages and Literature and am currently sitting for Honours in English at the University of South Africa. I am working on a portfolio which will be submitted as part of my application to do a Masters in Creative Writing at the University of Cape Town next year. I have worked professionally for over 15 years, but have moved into freelancing in order to focus on my passions, writing and editing. To recap, some of my knowledge-based skills have been highlighted in this profile. I can write about anything that I set my mind to, or am asked to do, but for interest's sake, particularly for those of you who share these interests, I devote my time to Art, Culture, History, Literature, Literary and Popular Fiction and Politics. Apart from being a talented pro, I am university educated.
I'm a chartered management accountant, but for the past few years have gravitated more towards BI and away from finance. I love numbers, but people more; business, but nature more. In a world of conflicts and dwindling resources I believe we should find a balance between our immediate interests and humanity's long term needs, and I hope my skills can be applied in a way that helps move us closer rather than further from this balance. I believe big business has a role to play, and big business is here to stay, but SME's are the ones that excite me. There's more innovation, more equitable income distribution, more accountability and more opportunity for change, and more space for personal expression. To me that sounds like the sort of vehicle that can take us forward in a meaningful way rather than speeding toward a cliff and hoping we learn to fly before we get there. The internet and its vast possibilities also excite me. It has the power to bring people together; to give us a voice, new markets, new products; to ask questions and find answers; to change the way we interact with each other and our world. And have I mentioned pictures of cats? It's perhaps our finest invention, and it might just be our most powerful tool in facing our biggest challenges. Whatever it is, there's no ignoring it.

"Quality is remembered long after the price is forgotten" – Gucci Family Motto. Although my translation abilities include Dutch, Afrikaans, Germanic, French and Welsh language pairs, these are not principally promoted as my primary function and objective is to transform formal and academic English into a globally understandable, readable, taut, grammatically correct, and acceptable style of English while maintaining an understanding of the need and place for using of localized vernacular. Make your literary task easier by taking advantage of the skills of a TRUE Native English specialist (born, bred, and educated in the homeland of the English language – perhaps the reason it is called English because it was invented (developed) in England), who has spent a lifetime developing, cultivating and updating his literary competence in many far-flung parts of globe becoming familiar with the language in all its flavours (including US, UK, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, East Africa, and points between) and developing skills in editing and proofreading (Chicago / Oxford / MLA / APA 5 / APA 6 / AMS / IEEE / Harvard / Vancouver / Elsevier styles, and plain, old-fashioned Queens English, among others). Corrected output can be returned in MS Word format (with "track changes", sidebar comments and advice) for all changes, or in Latex typeset format with native raw code and PDF output depending on the client's choice. All house style requirements are strictly adhered to in either case. Citing and language are in accordance with accepted modern style standards. My core competence lies in taking a literary product or service then polishing until it shines so you can see your reflection, and these services are offered to help clients effectively and efficiently produce an ideal "final product". I am currently seeking opportunities where my high competence in written / spoken English (all varieties), multifaceted business skills, and extensive experience with current communication facilities could be used for mutual benefit.
