I am a senior content manager at a data visualization and storytelling company, where I provide editorial consulting for public health organizations. I am a former science and technology editor for World Book Encyclopedia, so I know a little about a lot of things—computers, military history, food and cooking, video games, industry, environmental pollution. If something falls under the word "technology," I can probably spout an interesting fact or two about it.

Beyond my professional experience, I have a lifelong love of storytelling, particularly fantasy. As an undergrad, I wrote my thesis at the University of Chicago on fantasy in children's literature, focusing on C.S. Lewis and Philip Pullman.

If you're looking for editorial services, my experience in educational publishing and data visualization has given me a strong sense of how to create clear, evocative writing for all ages.
