I'm a freelance book editor, writer, and researcher with a master's degree in literary journalism from NYU. My essays and journalism have appeared at The Huffington Post, Salon, The Atlantic online, and other outlets. I have been a contributing writer to six nonfiction books (St. Martin's Press, Publications International), and I'm the author of two YA textbooks. Additionally, I'm a regular contributor at Bustle.com and Romper.com. As much as I love to write, I love editing more. I work with writers in all genres as a developmental book editor. Whether you're working on a literary novel, a crime thriller, an academic book, or inspirational nonfiction, I'd love to work with you. Let's collaborate!

In addition to freelancing, I have been an intern at Writer’s House Literary Agency, a copy-editor at The Foundation Center, and an editorial fellow at Salon Media Group.
