About me:
After graduating with a first-class degree in Literature and Linguistics from the University of Birmingham, I pursued my love of language and books by going into publishing. My experience ranges from being the Asia Desk editor for an international news agency to authoring books for children.


Very helpful, communicative, reliable and quick. I am very pleased to work with you and hope to work together again. I do recommend him to everyone as well.


I was very pleased with the work Nick did on my book, combining both a rigorous attitude to improving language and expression and the eye of a creative and thoughtful reader. Highly recommended.


Nick is very effective and has been diligent in his work. What I like with his work , he corrected my essays without changing my writing style. In addition , I did save a lot of time , since what he did what spot on and no further corrections from my end . He was perfect and I highly recommend him to those who need to do some proofreading and editing work.


Nick has been a great asset to my work and I’m very happy with the work done by Root and Branch. I’d recommend them to anyone who requires proofreading and copy editing.
