Since my beginning in publishing in 2011, I’ve worked on a wide variety of genres from textbooks to self-publishing to literary fiction. I started at Oxford University Press in editorial with Communication, Journalism, and Media Studies titles, where I had the pleasure of working with both journalists and academics. I then transitioned from editorial to agenting when I realized that my real passion is the relationship with authors and how I can be the advocate that they need. I spent a short time as Digital Marketing Manager at Lowenstein Associates, planning and executing author marketing campaigns across social media. I then spent two years at Denise Shannon Literary Agency, a boutique agency that specializes in literary fiction, where I managed foreign rights, first serial, and permissions and provided editorial feedback on early drafts of client's manuscripts.
I'm now an agent at Regal Hoffmann & Associates. I also freelance as a proofreader for St. Martin’s Press.
In all my projects, author care comes first and the goals they have for a specific piece of writing.

With his dry sense of humor and self-deprecating humility―despite his many accomplishments―Frank... read more
Many business books fuel unrealistic notions about what a good idea looks like, how fast a founder should attract investment, and how quickly growth will take off. The problem with this mythology is that it can sometimes end with entrepreneurs abandoning their dreams too soon if they don't see immediate results. In The Hockey Stick Principles, author Bobby Martin shifts his focus away from all... read more

In 1850, Nathaniel Hawthorne, fired from Salem's Custom House and returning to writing, reconceived his old job title, Surveyor of Customs, as his new one.
