Overview

I'm a meticulous editor with years of experience translating tricky concepts into smooth, captivating prose. With a background in technical writing, communication management, and the social sciences, I'm ready to take on your book, blog post, white paper, what have you, and polish until it shines.

I’ve worked with academics, authors, screenwriters, and businesses on all types of editorial projects: novels, ebooks, scripts, book proposals, white papers, articles, newsletters, and more. Have some writing that needs another set of eyes? I'd love to work with you, too.

If you'd like to get a sense of my editorial style, send over a sample of your work. I'm always happy to provide a free sample edit so you can decide if I'm the right fit for your project.
