I am a writer and editor in a broad variety of fields: corporate, technical, marketing and print journalism. With 17 years experience, I am practical and goal-driven and I know how to craft a sentence that sings. Living in Heidelberg, Germany, I bring a European perspective, but as a South African, I understand emerging markets. I have written for tech companies, mining houses, NGOs, consultancies and publishing houses using these media: web sites, corporate journals, marketing materials, technical books, white papers and brochures.
I offer a writing and editing service for companies that care about good communication. I write business materials in both US and British English spanning marketing, corporate communications and technical and pay particular attention to the requirements of a global audience. I breathe life into tired copy by assessing it for grammar, tone, logic and flow, and am particularly sensitive to the errors made by second language speakers of English and by first language speakers not attuned to their audience. I offer a quick turn-around, reasonable professional fees, attention to detail and an acute sensitivity to how language works.
