I am first and foremost a reader.
I read, as Gary Paulsen once advised, ‘like a wolf eats.’
This has given me a special insight into the way language works, the way stories are told, and the way ideas are best explained. What drew me to this field was my love of words.
I worked in the publishing industry for over a decade in editorial, production, and communications roles before starting my freelance business five years ago.
I’ve worked as a production editor at the American Institute of Physics (AIP), as a production coordinator and typesetter at the Modern Language Association (MLA), and as a digital content specialist at Barnes & Noble / Nook Media.
My freelance copy editing experience includes fiction and nonfiction books for Kirkus Reviews, peer-reviewed scientific articles for The Optical Society (OSA), academic papers including master’s theses and doctoral dissertations, among many other types of projects.
My freelance writing experience includes creating content for marketing and advertising materials, press releases, white papers, websites, and blogs for both small businesses and major corporations.
