I'm an editor living and working in Minneapolis, MN. I work with authors and publishers to share ideas that deserve to be read. I'm a former editor from Oxford University Press and I've worked in book publishing since 2011. My goal is to help you present your ideas clearly without compromising on style. I use inclusive editing techniques to avoid bias and ensure that your work is accessible to all readers. I've read for literary agents at renowned agencies, managed the publication of award-winning medical resources, and assisted in the development of scholarly references that have shaped the way we conduct research today. I'm interested in a wide range of prescriptive and narrative nonfiction including environmental science; food studies; health and wellness; cultural criticism; and discussions of race, gender, and sexuality.
