About Mike

I have decades of experience as a professional writer and editor. During that time, I've worked on consumer and professional magazines, newspapers, and for major software companies, including HP and Cisco. I lectured at New York University, creating and teaching a course in professional copyediting.

I have a passion for clear, concise, and elegant English. I grew up in England (where I graduated from Cambridge University) and have lived in the United States for 30 years. This gives me effortless versatility in idiomatic British or American English. I've also worked extensively with European and Indian English second-language speakers. My IT writing career gives me complete comfort with technical English.

I am expert in every aspect of desktop publishing and document creation from typesetting to graphic layout using a wide range of applications, in particular Office applications. I have created several substantial websites, using applications like Dreamweaver. I have programmed recreationally for 20 years, mostly in Visual Basic, and was granted and subsequently sold a software patent.

I'm new to Wyzant and will provide discounted tutoring and editing services to develop my client base.
