After nearly two decades in the business, I've worked with just about everything. Dissertations in sociology, anthropology, political science, economics, philosophy. Pulitzer-prize-winning novels. Thrillers, mysteries, zombies, true crime, romance, erotica, scifi, and more zombies. Men who love dogs and the women who love them. Quantitative and qualitative research reports, journal articles, grant evaluations, and more.
I trained at MLA headquarters, I hold an MA (ABD) in sociology, and I love what I do. When I handle your copyediting or proofreading project, you can expect the highest quality service.
Converted decade-plus "side gig" into a successful full-time endeavor. I copyedit, proofread, and correct files for print and online publication, build and maintain client list, generate and track all invoices, and maintain financial records.
