Favorite referencing style

Harvard is my favorite. I used it for both of my degrees!

Why I became an editor

I studied music at conservatoire, and quite a large part of it involved writing (and proofreading!) essays, program notes, and other documents. Proofreading the work of others as well as myself is something I find very satisfying. Giving close attention to detail and being a perfectionist are traits that are essential to both musicians and proofreaders, so combining the two careers is amazing!

Background and experience

I have a variety of prior proofreading experience.

Why I love proofreading and editing

I love how meticulous proofreading is. Often, it involves working with detailed instructions and having a list of everything to look out for. I particularly enjoy proofreading and editing anything to do with music, art, literature, and philosophy, and I have particular experience with Harvard referencing. Reading is a huge hobby of mine, too, so doing this for a living—and learning new things along the way—is hugely satisfying.

Favorite book:

An Equal Music by Vikram Seth is my favorite book.

Hobbies:

When I'm not proofreading, I'm playing and teaching music, cooking spicy food, or going for dog walks in the countryside.

Editing tips:

I work with checklists so I don't miss anything. I always start by correcting obvious mechanical errors before going back through and checking more carefully.
