Overview

My background is in film and video, so I’ve spent many hours in editing suites. In my opinion, a flawless edit is one that passes by almost completely unnoticed by the viewer. As a viewer or reader, I hate to be pulled out of a story and reminded of the existence of the writer, filmmaker, or editor by a bad edit or grammatical error—I always want to stay lost in a great story!

As an editor, what is most important to me is that the editing I do ensures writing that is clear, correct, concise, consistent, and compelling, so that the reader never loses that feeling of being lost inside your story or message.
