Editing

As a composer with extensive engraving experience, it’s only natural that those skills – attention to detail, consistency, and clarity – translate to the written word.

I’ll just say it – I’ve loved video games since I was a child. I was drawn in by the storytelling, the music, and the interactivity, and my love of games continues to this day. It’s part of why I founded and ran a choir that performed video game music while I was in college! Over the past few years, my enthusiasm for this medium has shifted from the musical to the written word, though I do still arrange game music on occasion.

I proofread and edit English text for a number of industries (academic, marketing, film), but my passion is games. I ensure that game text is clear, consistent, and enhances the narrative, from UI text to dialogue and everything in between. I’ve worked on the text for titles including Summer in Mara, The Witcher: Monster Slayer, South of the Circle, and Vampire: the Masquerade – Coteries of New York.

Why should you work with me? My proofreading experience and love for games ensure that I understand the context of in-game text, the technical requirements of the engine, and the necessary flexibility of the interactive medium. If you’d like to chat further, please get in touch.
