Hi there! I’m a freelance writer, editor, and proofreader from New Zealand, currently based in Nepal. I offer a wide range of high-quality services, which I describe in detail here.

At the risk of stating the obvious, I’m available for three kinds of work: writing, editing, and proofreading. These are intentionally broad categories, because I like to keep myself open to all enquiries. My rate depends on the complexity of the work, and how much background research is required. If you send me a brief description of the job you need doing (via this form), I’ll get back to you with a quote within 24 hours.

To learn more about me and see if I’m the right person for the job, check out my about page.

Here’s what people are saying about my work:

  • Matt edited the introductory chapter of my Masters research thesis. His work was very professional, and he was very approachable and personable. His notes were clear and concise. I was impressed with his ability to simplify complex concepts of music-linguistics, and make them comprehensible to anyone. He will be my go-to next time I need anything edited, no matter what the subject.

  • Matt edited and proofread my Law Honours thesis. I found his considered comments on both grammar and overall structure to be extremely helpful. Matt has excellent attention to detail; I would strongly recommend him as an editor.

  • Matt proofread my political science Honours dissertation on parliamentary select committees. He was able to sift through the dense 40-page document in a matter of days and provided me with invaluable feedback and edits. Fantastic work. Highly recommended.
