Genealogy & Family History / Science Copy-editing & Proofreading


Since 2017 I have been working as a freelancer for Enago/Crimson, editing scientific journal articles written by authors whose first language is not English, bringing the language up to the standard required for submission/publication.

For the last 5 years I have been researching my family tree as well, particularly the Scottish branch.

I am qualified to teach English as a foreign language, and have taught English at two Edinburgh language schools and run my own classes.

Prior to this, I spent more than 20 years as a technical consultant in the field of scientific journal publishing.

I am an Englishman living in Edinburgh, in Scotland... a great place to be.
