​About me

 

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 25 years' experience as an actor, director and playwright. As an actor, I recently originated the role of The Time Traveller in Dyad Productions' The Time Machine (Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2017 and UK/international tour 2018-19).

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 seven-year-old daughter.
