Ways I can help

Dissertation Editing & Proofreading

Your dissertation lasts long after your defense of it. It is important to make sure your document is not only free from basic proofreading errors but that you follow the specific formatting guidelines of your institution. The publication of your dissertation will represent you to potential employers and form a solid foundation for your entire career. Let me help you make your dissertation your most powerful asset before you even set foot inside the room for your defense. 

Historical Diagrams and Illustrations

In depth research is often best communicated in pictures. A diagram to compliment your research paper or academic publication can enhance your thesis by making your research easier to grasp. For professional ventures like historical travel tours or digital downloads for a podcast, illustrations make great advertising for your company as well as built-in souviners for your customers. Let me bring your history research to life with vibrant and accurate illustrations. 

History Consultant

When you are setting your project in the past, you want to make sure you bring all the intricacies of the context into your project so they can compliment, rather than detract from, your overall story. As someone who spends a significant amount of time in 16-17th century England, Scotland, and Wales, I can help make sure the small details of your film, novel, or play are historically accurate.
