About our team

Alex Hawkins

Director & Lead Proof-reader

Alex has a First Class degree in History from the University of Southampton and a Masters degree, with Merit, from the University of Manchester. A confessed spelling and grammar pedant, Alex first realised his skill and interest in proof-reading when he took a job writing letters on behalf of the directors of a major high street retailer in 2009. As a result of his growing interest, he set up Foolproof in 2011 and has since helped hundreds of customers by combining his proof-reading and academic experience.

Dom Carter


Dom Carter has a first class degree in English and Creative Writing and an MA from the University of Chester. An editor of the university's creative writing magazine, he went on to become a valedictory prize winner before working as a proof-reader and copywriter. Familiar with working with a variety of industries, he is also an internationally published short story writer.

Tom Rokins


Tom is a recent graduate of The University of Chester with a 2:1 in German and Creative Writing. He has been worringly passionate about the proper use of grammar and correct spelling from an early age, having proof-read for friends since primary school. It is this obsession with language that led him to proof-reading and keeps him interested in languages around the world, as Tom is fluent in German and speaks basic French, Spanish and Italian as well.
