Previously an assistant editor at Yale University Press, I'm now a full-time copy editor and proofreader of biography, history, politics & current affairs, and literature.
Recent proofreading projects include volume 3 in a new edition of Proust’s opus IN SEARCH OF LOST TIME and a translated biography of Astrid Lindgren, author of the beloved Pippi Longstocking books. While at Yale University Press, I acquired and edited books for its distinguished history list. This meant working with talented first-time authors (Justin du Rivage, REVOLUTION AGAINST EMPIRE) and veteran scholars (Patrick Griffin, THE TOWNSHEND MOMENT). I also oversaw two literary prizes and coordinated many aspects of Jewish Lives, an award-winning series of interpretive biographies.
Whether polishing a manuscript for grammar and style or catching those errors you'd rather not see go to press, I bring to my work a keen eye for detail and a warm and responsive communication style.
