Daniel is a freelance editor and proof-reader, whose diverse experience in law, music, vocal technique and languages (German and Chinese Mandarin) has enabled him to work with a broad range of arts organisations, music schools, symphony orchestras, authors, NGOs, small businesses and international corporations. Daniel is able to adapt his approach to enhance the fluency and clarity of texts and ensure they reflect each organisation’s voice and style. He establishes positive editor-author relationships, ensuring the primacy of the author’s voice while making sure the writing is as effective as possible.
Daniel is currently a consulting editor with the United Nations Human Settlements Program (UN-Habitat), financial markets data provider Refinitiv, and the Melbourne-based chamber music ensemble Forest Collective. Other recent projects include marketing development for peak performance psychology business The Performer’s Edge, Katherine Chu and Juliet Petrus’ book Singing in Mandarin: A Guide to Chinese Lyric Diction and Vocal Repertoire for Rowman & Littlefield, and various German translations in the fields of property law and early childhood music education.
Daniel has also written and edited numerous grant applications, artists’ biographies, concert programme notes and advertising copy for arts organisations.
