I am a freelance book and content editor with about 8 years of experience editing and co-writing books, ebooks, and online content. Here are some of the arbitrary subjects I’ve become a dilettante expert in as a result of various editing projects over the years: automated marketing software, geotechnology, environmentalism, modern poetry, beer brewing, how to cook with leftovers, yoga, mindfulness, San Francisco’s civic art. More than subject matter, I live for helping sentences and ideas fulfill their potential.
Recent online content clients:- Google- Berkeley Labs- Marketo- Robert Walters- Hope Consulting
