Freelance Writer and Editor
I’ve had the opportunity to work as a writer and editor on various content, including industry news, blogs, profiles, B2B feature articles, scientific articles, and book-length material. I’ve written or edited on topics such as education, healthcare, architecture, interior design, and robotics.
- Earned a BS in Journalism and Mass Communication and an MA in Teaching English as a Second Language.
- As a former editor at B2B magazines, wrote weekly newsletters, interviewed subject matter experts for feature articles, and covered conferences.
- Managed a blog on sustainable land use on the WordPress platform.
- Copy edited, designed, and proofed a 200-page book on organizational philosophy and strategies.
When we decided to submit our research paper to the Arabian Journal for Science and Engineering, we were looking for a professional who could proofread our work for its English content related to the grammar, spelling, and punctuation. John Oberlin provided us quite a professional service where he not only highlighted the grammar related errors in the article, but he also helped us improve the flow of the sentences. His detailed and meticulous feedback greatly helped us improve the quality of our work as we finally got our paper published in the said journal.
