Since 2017, Magnum Proofreading has perfected the writing of hundreds of students, PhD candidates, researchers, professors, and other authors. I am very proud to have helped my clients get their research articles, essays, PhD theses, and other works accepted while charging less than 25% of what my competitors charge.

My journey as a professional proofreader began in 2016 after I wrote a book on cribbage strategy (Cribbage: A Strategy Guide for Beginners) as a hobby during evenings and on my lunch breaks at my job at a home appliances warehouse. I had been looking for a career change for some time; upon realizing that I enjoyed editing my book even more than writing it, I was certain that I wanted a career in proofreading and editing. Furthermore, after being unable to find a good proofreader who charged less than $10.00/1000 words, I knew I wanted to help people who are early in their writing careers and need a truly affordable proofreading service.

Less than six months after making these decisions, I quit my job and focused on my new career. Living off my savings, I pursued education beyond my Bachelor of Arts degree; read any book I could find on English grammar, proofeading, and editing; developed my business plan; and created my website. After much work, Magnum Proofreading opened for business on June 14, 2017. Since then, I have had the pleasure of working with authors from Canada, the US, England, Chile, India, Malaysia, New Zealand, and many other countries in between.

Whether you’ve produced a research article that you’re hoping to have accepted by an academic journal, or you’ve spent countless hours working on your PhD dissertation, I understand how important your writing is to you. That means it’s important to me, too. I look forward to helping you meet your goals.
