Editing
Through editing, I help people craft their texts in order to make their message crystal clear to readers. A text can be tailored to different audiences, or non-native English can be tweaked to make the author’s meaning more precise. The challenge is to ‘perfect’ a text while remaining as close as possible to the voice of the author.

  • Post-Masters in International Relations from the School of International Relations, University of Amsterdam, the Netherlands

These are organizations I have worked for:

Bernard van Leer Foundation (BvLF) – editing documents from BvLF-funded projects around the world and turning them into booklets for a wide readership.

    • Supporting Fathers is a collection of articles about fatherhood around the world. It blends theoretical and practical articles written by scholars and practitioners from around the world.

Capacity.org is a magazine for professionals working on development issues around the world.

I have given lectures at Webster University on academic editing
