Since 1981 I have worked on many different titles, giving me a broad-based experience of publishers and publishing styles. I particularly enjoy working on the structure and organization of both paper and electronic publications to make sure that they are suitable for, and attractive to, their intended readership.
Although my background is in the natural sciences, and much of my recent work has been in the environmental/conservation/sustainability field, I am happy to consider most other subjects.
I pride myself on being reliable and always meeting agreed deadlines.
