Daniel Grosvenor's Summary
Experienced pedant with a background in writing, editing, proofreading, I.T., social media and youth engagement. For the past 5 years I have worked on building CLIConline: a network of 23 interactive, online magazines across Wales. The purpose of CLIConline is to provide every young person in Wales with a platform to safely express themselves – primarily through creative writing and multimedia – and to allow information to be easily accessed and exchanged in a way that's appealing and engaging for young people. Now that the project is winding down I am seeking part-time employment (as I am involved with other projects). However I will consider full-time work if it's something I can feel passionate about.
Specialises in proofreading, punctuation and punk rock.
