    I love writing. Except, admittedly, when it's about myself. So, I’ll keep this simple... Got a problem connecting with your audience? Reach out to me and let’s fix that. Writing, be it a novel or novel research is about creating connections. Medical writing is no exception. Well-executed, it tells a compelling story that connects you to the reader while upholding the highest standards of authority and integrity. That in a nutshell, is what I do. I use my creativity to help businesses and brands foster a relationship with their audience. They use my writing and research to build trust, credibility and drive sales. They’ve even used it to inspire new product development. I can do this because my experience in clinical medicine and research placed me right at the intersection between science and the public. I approach my writing work like I do my work as a doctor, by bridging the gap between the technicalities of healthcare and people. With my help, you will: - Strike the perfect balance between precision and accessibility - Maintain your brand's unique voice while communicating complex information - Unlock the power of clear medical writing - Stay compliant with the relevant guidelines and regulations - Keep your audience up to speed with the latest research What makes me good at what I do is simple - I love it. I’d do it for free. When I first began, I practically did. In less than two years, I've taken my freelance career from a standing start to 5-figure months and never settled for less than a 5-star review. I've completed hundreds of projects for clients including Johnson & Johnson and Woman & Home, published in NEJM, Nature and national newspapers and I’m still just getting started. Ready to connect your healthcare message with your audience? I'm just a message away.

    I am passionate about all types of writing and research. For me, job satisfaction comes from an idea or message that is communicated and shared with others in a way that is understandable and enriching. My research and writing skills are honed by the high standards of academic philosophy. These skills allow me to work with complex concepts and communicate them in an effective and understandable way, whether for an academic or general reader. Furthermore, writing academic projects has taught me a very high level of editing and proofreading which is a fundamental requirement of academic writing. I bring this approach to all my writing projects. Extensive experience as a tutor and teaching assistant in essay writing and philosophy has given me strong abilities to identify errors and correct them effectively. Part of correcting errors is explaining in a constructive manner how to prevent them from happening again, which is a core element of of my teaching method. Working in the corporate environment as a researcher and product developer taught me how to work well under pressure, meet deadlines and have a fast sense of problem solving without sacrificing quality of work.

    If you need a reliable and detail-oriented proofreader or editor, I am the freelancer for you. I have over three years of experience in proofreading and copy-editing a wide variety of documents, including theses, dissertations, reports, magazine articles, articles for websites, blog posts, website content, and marketing content. I am a native English speaker with a Bachelor of Arts Degree in English Literature and a Master's Degree in Art Historical Studies. I received a distinction for my MA dissertation, which has given me insight into producing a well-written text. I work well independently and will provide accurate work in a timely manner while always paying attention to detail and delivering a high level of accuracy. I can perform two levels of editing: Proofreading – Review your work to check for typos and to ensure the correct formatting. Checking for formatting errors could be ensuring the footnotes, spacing, table of contents, and spacing are correct. Copy-editing – This will include what is covered in proofreading but will also check for grammatical errors, errors in sentence structure, punctuation errors, and consistency in style and tone in order to ensure the correct flow of your text. As a trained librarian, I can apply a style guide as needed, such as APA, Chicago Manual of Style, or Oxford Style Manual, and am more than capable of performing fact-checking.

    I am passionate about knowledge. I enjoy my work. Everything is a new challenge to master. I enjoy editing in all forms and helping to improve their work. I am congenial, hard working and score reasonably well on the EQ scale. So, I play well with others. I find editing and working on knowledge products rewarding for a number of reasons: learning new things, helping to add to the zeitgeist, and helping people to improve the quality of the work that they present. I enjoy communicating with people, understanding what they need, and then meeting their requirements. I have no qualms about being honest if something is not right, but I always try to approach this with sensitivity and care. I truly look forward to helping you improve your work. I look forward to hearing from you. Cheers!

    I have a bachelor's degree in visual communication studies (graphic design) and a master's degree in fine arts. For the past fifteen years, I have worked as a design and production specialist in book publishing. I began my career with freelance design on art catalogues and monographs. I then moved into educational publishing, working for South Africa's top textbook publisher. I managed the company's collection of artists and illustrators and oversaw company-wide artwork commissioning. In time, I led the picture research, design, and production teams. My most recent position at Pearson was director of design and digital development. A challenging and multifaceted role, managing various content development teams, transitioning from print to digital publishing, spearheading brand development, and championing our progressive editorial policy. In 2022 I completed a copy-editing and proofreading qualification. A skill that I have long admired and value deeply. With my end-to-end publishing and content creation experience, I hope to support authors and content developers to produce engaging, elegant, accurate, and error-free content across different platforms.

    General skills: I am a self - starter and enjoy learning. I attended discussion panels and forum discussions throughout my high school and university careers as I like to have a well-rounded skills base. I am always eager to learn and enjoy trying my hand at new things. I always try my best and I hold myself to a high standard, especially in the context of a team because I do not want to let a team down.

I was part of the team to rename a section of the House, as part of our mission to make residence spaces more inclusive of different languages and cultures. I’ve also been part of the Chair of the ‘Heemies Helpmekaar’ committee which is an initiative overseen by the mentors of Heemstede, whereby we fundraise and donate certain products for women in need, allowing every woman to be on the same playing field in our residence.

    I started working at Aveng Manufacturing Steeledale Cape in February 1996 as a general labourer in the production yard, since then I progressed through data capture to production planning to invoicing to Systems Administrator to Regional IT Manager of Aveng Manufacturing Steeledale Cape effective July 2007 to March 2012 and to desktop support as a result of the business merging with a corporate entity. In my position as IT Manager I managed the daily maintenance of infrastructure, server maintenance, vendor liaison and procurement, SLA management, management communications, adherence to company procedures, implementation and maintenance of processes and procedures, continuous improvement, budget input. As the IT Systems Administrator, I managed the maintenance of the infrastructure, hardware and software of Steeledale Cape. I designed, implemented and commissioned the network infrastructure and hardware infrastructure of the East London branch which was established in April 2009, I managed the Hardware/Software/LAN/WAN for the 5 coastal branches of Steeledale, ie.Cape Town, Paarl, George, Port Elizabeth and East London, as well as our Namibia branch, which included the daily desktop/ software support to all branches, server backup and maintenance, management/ monitoring of CCTV systems for CT and Paarl, management of access control system for Head Office in Cape Town, support for PABX system at Cape Town and Paarl branches, support with biometrics clocking system (hardware and PeopleWare software) for all 5 South African branches, converging our technology with later technology. This prevailed until the merger with the Aveng Group IT in April 2012. The management of the infrastructure was subsequently removed and taken over by the Aveng Group IT and my function was amended to desktop/ software support. I am also a specialist in the Steel Industry production software called Armaplus, which I had been instrumental in implementing in the years 1997/1998 to 2008. All knowledge acquired in the various software referred to here was acquired on the job, this includes the administration and management of the SQL Databases, SQL Server 2000-2012, MS Server 2003 and 2008, MS Small Business Server, MS Exchange Server, Citrix Server, T-SQL Queries, Active Directory, Microsoft operating systems such as Windows 98, 2000, XP ,Windows 7,Windows 8, Microsoft Lync Support, Microsoft Office Suites 2003 - 2013, stand-alone e-mail server software such as MDaemon. I also have working experience in Accpac for Windows, and Help Desk support Levels 1 and 2. I have experience in the management of IT within a privately owned company, and will make a good team member to any organisation. I ran my own IT Company, providing sales of hardware and software and associated support services to clients as and when needed, but was unable to compete with the larger more established companies. I am currently workign as a sales person for a Steel related company in Cape Town.
