I'm a freelance editor and writer serving clients in the arts, nonprofit, and business sectors since 2003. My work runs the gamut, from copyediting books, exhibition catalogues, and wall texts, to writing and editing newsletters and annual reports, to drafting press releases and fundraising collateral. I’ve worked directly with museums and organizations on short- and long-term projects.
