Hi, I'm Stephen
I set up Zeropoint Editorial in 2017 after achieving a Distinction in Basic Proofreading by Distance Learning from the Publishing Training Centre.
I have six years' experience in the education sector, working as a Qualifications Development Manager for a leading awarding organisation. I wrote, edited and proofread a wide range of educational support materials for vocational qualifications in the childcare and health and social care sectors, including hundreds of qualification specifications
My great passions are theatre and music. I have over twenty years' experience as an actor, director and playwright. I create my own music as Nearly a Chaos, and have composed original music for a number of stage productions.
I live in St Albans, Hertfordshire, with my six-year-old daughter.
