Hi, my name is Carlton Burgess, founder and owner of CB Editing Services. Welcome to my website. I’m a freelance proofreader and editor living in Lanarkshire, Scotland.
I was born and educated in the UK, and English is my first language. I have graduated with distinction from the College of Media and Publishing as a certified Editor and Proofreader. I take pride in my work and will always fulfil my assigned role conscientiously. I believe there is no point in finishing work unless I’ve given my best effort.
Proofreading and editing combine some of my existing skillsets with one of the things I love. Reading has always been my passion, and I was trained to read and speak publicly from a very young age. It could be said that I am an obsessive reader. I compulsively read everything, books, TV subtitles, adverts, even the labels on cornflakes packets. If there is type, I find reading it is unavoidable.
My background in the automotive industry has given me comprehensive mechanical knowledge, and my spell in the fields of transportation, logistics and the building trade has given me a working knowledge of other industries. However, I am highly adaptable and can capably work within various sectors.
