Over a decade’s experience of copy-editing, proofreading and project managing editorial jobs of all sizes. Happy to tackle most subjects. I’m also a comedy writer with material regularly broadcast on BBC radio so I can even add jokes if you want me to.
I worked in the Creative Services department of Coachwise Ltd for 11 years, managing a wide range of my own editorial projects in various media, so I am experienced in dealing with clients, designers, authors and other contributors.
Most of my work for Coachwise was related to sports coaching in some way. Satisfied clients include Sports Coach UK (now UK Coaching), 1st4sport Qualifications, the Association for Physical Education and the British Horseracing Authority.
Since going freelance, I have completed a variety of editing projects for numerous clients. Recent jobs include two novels, three history books, a visitor guide to Silicon Valley and the English-language pages of a German property website.
I am keen to continue taking my editorial skills into other areas, especially those that involve my personal interests of comedy and music.

Chris is reliable, honest, diligent, thorough, accurate and trustworthy. He not only has a strong editorial background, but is a great asset in any team in which he works. I sincerely hope to work with him again in the future.
Steven Bancroft, Head of Creative Services, Coachwise Ltd
Chris is a great editor. Thorough, efficient, helpful and perhaps best of all, he doesn’t charge per word. He looks at your text and provides a time and price based on the overall job which is far more reasonable. He provides a timescale for the work and sticks to it. Highly recommended.
