Often the most difficult part of any project is finding the perfect phrase; with experience in crafting text for a variety of audiences, I can uncover those hard-to-find words for any situation.
I’ll help you polish your website copy – as a third party editor, I can analyze it without bias and correct any overseen inconsistencies.
That final step before sending an important document to print or launching your website is easier when you have the eyes of an expert checking things one last time.
More than just a wordsmith, I also offer a range of other custom services to help with company branding, outreach and online growth.
As an English language writer based in Montreal, it takes persistence and no little talent to land a full-time position in your field. Luckily I’m a person with both traits in abundance (I’m also extremely humble). Since graduating from Concordia University in 2007, I have worked as a writer and editor both Freelance and full-time. If you would like more information about my Services, rates, Portfolio or any of my work experience, please don’t hesitate to contact me.

Freelancing can be a chaotic career. At any given time in your week, you could have 1 project or 10 projects… and that can change at the ping of a new email. I am a fairly organized person when it comes to project management, at least that’s what my former coworkers told me! So today[…]
If you’ve ever sat down to read through every piece of literature that comes out of a single company, you’d notice that there are differences. While the general language and terminology stays the same – after all, that’s branding for you – the tone, content and appearance change. This is due to the fact that[…]
I have worked with several different clients, all of which have been fantastic (I think I’m just lucky). Every one of them have had different approaches to working with me and, I’m assuming, the other freelancers they’ve hired. Likewise, I work in communication and special projects during the day, which requires me to liaison with[…]
Well, looks like I left everyone on a bit of a cliffhanger way back in November. Oops. My bad guys! I “won” NaNoWriMo, in the sense that I wrote 50K in 30 days. In fact, I wrote 26K of that in the last three days of the month, but that’s neither here nor there. SO MUCH[…]
A few years ago, I added an article to Wikipedia about the Opimian Society. Not a big deal, some might say, anyone can add an article. True, but not every article is accepted. Some articles are removed or rejected due to language that is too promotional or articles that do not provide enough sources. As the largest[…]
While editing an 80 paged document, I came to appreciate the Style Guides I had developed for my employer. An ever growing document, it provided me with the basic answers to my ever present editing questions – does this company prefer Canadian spelling over American? Which accents are regularily used when referring to Carmenère? Saint-Émillon?[…]
Word Count: 36,164 Words written from Friday, 6:30pm – Saturday, 4am: 10,265 Hours Remaining: 44 So, I thought I’d given up on NaNoWriMo half way through the month. That’s roughly 10 days in which I wasn’t writing. I’d caught up on Day 8, stayed level until Day 10, wrote my butt off on Day 16 and then…[…]
Current Word Count: 17,419 Today’s “Goal”: 25,000 It’s November 15th and that means I am half-way through NaNoWriMo. Last week I’d hit a major snag – my characters had all decided to do things I didn’t plan for. And yes, I realize how weird that sounds. I have a plot, which I’d spent a significant[…]
Today marks the start of a new NaNoWriMo. It’s an exciting day, filled with anticipation, wonder and the need to do everything but write the novel I’m supposed to be writing. I won’t bore anyone with my strategy or try to make it through another month of blogging-while-writing, because I’ve already done all of that –[…]
It’s 1:47 am as I type this… and that’s an early night for me. I’ll probably have my head on my pillow by 2:30 and maybe, just maybe – if I can turn off my ever-twirling brain, I’ll be asleep by 2:45. Maybe. Life has been crazy these last few months. It all really took[…]
