Experience

Summary

I have proofread anthologies of short stories and essays, and was the Editor of a monthly e-zine. I have been working as a freelance fiction editor throughout my Master's degree (Writing, Editing and Publishing). I currently write for a local news site.

Work history

Meditation Magazine
A free, monthly e-zine that reported on the latest scientific information about the benefits of meditation and mindfulness. Full of home and lifestyle tips, summaries of scientific studies, and tips and exercises to get the most out of your practice.
Kaleidoscope

What I read

Blogs: Zen Habits, the Writer's Digest, terribleminds
Books: Anything by Alain de Botton, detective mysteries like Chandler and Conan Doyle, historical fiction of any time period, and any sci-fi and fantasy I can find.

Side projects

I am currently working on a collection of short stories and two novels (detective mysteries and historical fiction).
I am also volunteer article writer for a local news website, where I write about the arts and the environment.

Ideal team

My ideal team is a small, close and openly transparent group. It's a team that welcomes all ideas, but that is not afraid to be honest or critique (kindly, of course). I value a team that gives a measure of autonomy, as I believe this aids creativity.
