Work experience

Owner

Self-employed
January, 1994 – Present (almost 25 years)

I'm an editor, writer, and proofreader with more than thirty years of experience. I've worked at high tech firms, universities, and ad agencies and have freelanced since 1994. I specialize in quick-turnaround, deadline-crunching proofreading and copy editing projects, but also provide longer-term developmental editing and book proposal writing.

My most recent proofreading project "Cryptoassets: The Innovative Investor's Guide to Bitcoin and Beyond" by Chris Burniske and Jack Tatar. Published by McGraw-Hill in October 2017, the book is now the #1 bestseller in two of its Amazon categories and #2 in another.

Current projects not reflected in my portfolio include copyediting and proofreading a memoir (expected publication November 2017), copyediting and proofreading a short medical handbook (expected publication December 2017), and copyediting and proofreading a cookbook (expected publication February 2018), and proofreading two novels (expected publication Spring 2018 and Fall 2018).
