Freelance developmental editor, copyeditor, and proofreader. I began working for professors and scientists at Stanford University, where I provided editorial assistance for a number of memoir projects, and then quickly expanded to provide freelance services as an editor for magazines in the San Francisco are, including 7x7 Magazine and California Home and Design, and in advertising campaigns spearheaded by Wunderman, among others. Inspired by the the creativity of friends and colleagues, I used my professional experience to ound an arts and culture magazine--YESYESYES Magazine--with local businesswomen in San Francisco's Mission District. I also co-founded and edited the San Francisco Journal, a literary publication that featured creative work by visual artists and musicians. I left these publications when I moved to New York to pursue an MFA in Creative Writing at NYU, where I continued freelancing for arts and fashion editorial and expanded my experience in editing fiction and nonfiction work.
