About

I specialise in providing engaging copy and precise editing and proofreading services. I am based in Bendigo, central Victoria, Australia.shane

The quality of my work is a product of my experience and passion.

I have worked for more than 12 years in Australia and Southeast Asia as a print and online journalist, copy editor, news editor and freelance writer and editor. As a journalist, I have received multiple Asia-wide journalism awards for my human rights reporting.

I have proofread academic writing for publication, written media releases, taught at university and presented public lectures on journalism and writing.

In my spare time, I have written a novel that was positively reviewed in national media, a song that was used on a BBC cricket documentary and a play that came second in a prestigious Melbourne theatre competition.

I make things happen in creative, professional and intelligent ways.

One of my favourite quotes (just for fun):

I spent all morning putting in a comma and all afternoon taking it out.
