About

Hi, I’m Haeja (hey-ja)! I’m a location-independent editor, which means I can blog and work anywhere in the world as long as I have my computer and access to the internet. I’ve been an editor since 2011, and I’ve edited academic papers, newspapers, magazines, novels, novellas, and short stories, from both local and international clients. I have a day job so I only accept extra jobs I can work on during the weekend or over several months.

I love to travel, and my old blog, Hey, Haeja (now incorporated here) was a celebration of the things and places that demonstrated how I celebrate my life — whether it be eating a slice of cake, or going on adventures here or abroad. I’m not a hardcore backpacker who scrimps on every penny. Instead, I take my time to save up for trips and the activities I really want to do. My travel posts are not about the cheapest way to travel but getting as much value for every penny I spend and making sure I (and my companions) will be safe and comfortable.
