  • Water engineering (technical)
  • University articles (academic)
  • Books (creative, editing, research)

I’m looking to work remotely from my home in Spain on a one-off, part-time, or longer projects suitable to my skill set.

Victoria - Nikita


Thomas completed a challenging SEO writing and editing mission for us in no time, and always made sure we were aware of all the important steps in the meantime. The exchange with his was always easy going and to the point. I would work with Thomas again without any doubt.

Encargué a Tom una traducción de mi web de castellano a inglés, pues quería ofrecer una versión anglosajona impecable y profesional de mi portfolio. Trabajar con Tom fue una experiencia muy gratificante y fluida. Tuve una respuesta rápida por su parte y tuve el trabajo finalizado antes de lo que esperaba. Recomiendo 100% a Thomas Shearman.
