I am proficient with all levels of book editing, including developmental editing, line editing, copy editing, and proofreading. My editing skills were first honed as a magazine and newspaper journalist. I work extensively with scholarly authors including at Harvard University, Princeton University, U.C. Berkeley, and the University of Toronto (see list below). My books have been published by Harvard University Press, MIT Press, and Endeavor Literary Press, to name a few.
In April 2022, Harvard University Press launched "Democratizing Finance: The Radical Promise of Fintech," which I edited for author and Harvard economist Marion Laboure. I also produced the index. The book is endorsed by renowned economists Lawrence Summers and Kenneth Rogoff, among others.
In August 2021, I edited and published (Endeavor Literary Press) "The Resilient Society" by Princeton University economist Markus Brunnermeier. This book made the "Best Books of the Year 2021" list published by the Financial Times in London and was awarded "Best Economics Book 2021" at the Frankfurt Book Fair. It was endorsed by two Nobel Prize winners, Robert Shiller and Angus Deaton, and by Gillian Tett, the chief editor of the Financial Times.
My first major work in 2021 was editing and publishing "The Pandemic Information Solution: Overcoming the Brutal Economics of Covid-19" (Endeavor Literary Press), by University of Toronto economist and MIT Press author Joshua Gans. Designed for policymakers and public health officials, the book played a role in advancing the widespread use of rapid antigen tests to slow the spread of Covid-19 in the US.
Also in 2021, I edited and published (Endeavor Literary Press) a book of poetry by award-winning spoken-word poet Phil Ginsburg. This book is titled "In Pursuit of the Almost." It was released in commemoration for National Poetry Month (April).
In July 2021, I edited and then published (Endeavor Literary Press) "Writing the Biodrama" by award-winning playwright Dr. Tee O'Neill. The book was endorsed by José Rivera, the Academy Award nominated screenwriter of "The Motorcycle Diaries."
In 2020, I provided the copyediting and proofreading for the MIT Press book titled "Innovation Matters," by Dr. Richard Gilbert, a UC Berkeley economist and former deputy attorney general for economics in the US Department of Justice.
In 2020 I did developmental editing, copy editing, and proofreading on "Bridge the Gap: How Leaders Can Revitalize Broken Organizations," by Michael Rodenberg, a CEO; and "Surviving Babies and Toddlers," a witty memoir about raising kids. Both were published by Endeavor Literary Press.
In 2019, I edited, among many others, "America's Youngest Hostages: The True Cost of Foster Care and Who's Paying for It," by Ian Keldoulis, a contributing writer for the New York Times and Harper's Bazaar. It was an honor to work on this crucial book about a terrible situation in the US.
In 2018, I edited and proofread the top-selling business book titled "Fluid" by young entrepreneur Najeeb Khan. Six more books that I edited are scheduled to be launched in April.
In 2017, my editing work has included four major theology books written by Jewish scholars, and a historian of sacred art. The titles are displayed below. I also edited soon-to-be-published "Stop Blaming Free Markets," an economics book by CEO Andrew Smith; the business and management book titled "ClickSand" by Bill Troy; and the self-help books "The Optimal Life" by Brian Vondruska, and "Simplifying Life" by Dr. Brett Taylor.
Among my 2016 projects, I edited and published "Own Your Time: Professional Time-Management Strategies for a Profitable and Balanced Life," by Fortune 500 executive coach Stephanie Wachman.
As a newspaper and wire service reporter in and around Washington, D.C., I worked for the American Journalism Review, Capital News Service, and The Frederick News-Post. My articles were published in numerous Maryland newspapers, the Associated Press and the former Knight-Ridder News Service. I covered Maryland politics and education in Washington, D.C., Baltimore, and Annapolis. I also wrote about two members of the U.S. House of Representatives, a U.S. Senator, and the U.S. Supreme Court. I won writing and reporting awards from the Associated Press and the Society of Professional Journalists.
In 2015, I graduated from the University of Denver Publishing Institute. I hold a master's degree in journalism from the University of Maryland and a bachelor's degree in English (creative writing) from Metropolitan State University of Denver.
