I am a skilled writer, editor and copy editor working online since 2009 and in magazine and continuity publishing, and public relations since 1986. I can work in British and American English and can tackle a wide variety of subject matter, editorials styles and voices. I have a track record in news, magazines, corporate and web writing. My work is fast, accurate and on time. In London, UK, I worked for the magazine division of the Mirror Group, freelanced for a number of publications including Offshore Financial Review (FT Group), Young Mother Magazine and International Masters Publishers (product development). I owned and ran Clarendon Marketing Consultants, a marketing, public relations and advertising agency. In Asia, I was Editor of The Beam, the official magazine of the British Association of Singapore. I currently live in St. Louis where I volunteer for the Salvation Army writing human interest and other stories for its publications and website. In 2009 I developed and currently edit and co-own, a hyper-local online newspaper in St. Louis. I continue to look for opportunities to develop my online newspaper, sell articles and expand my web experience. In addition, I am researching material for a non-fiction book. Specialist fields include, local news, health, lifestyle and food. I was born and grew up in Ireland, worked in the UK for about 12-years, spent 3-years in Asia and now live in the USA.
