Overview

My background enables me to bring three valuable sensibilities to my collaborations with writers:

1) An academic. My standards of accuracy, fluency, and rhetoric are not only high, but impassioned.

2) A professional. I understand the needs of different genres, and writing with a demanding audience in mind, as well as the priority of producing a distinctive and competitive book. I've edited multi-author volumes, so I know how to assemble a variety of voices and approaches into a coherent narrative.

3) An instructor. I can help you identify and strengthen your personal vision with a specific project. I can hear your writing voice and help you further individualize it. I'm patient and efficient, usually at the same time.

Below you can see my academic credentials, the range of my professional experience, and samples of my work. I've had terrific experiences with self-publishing: self-publishing allowed me to create a print journal from the ground up, and combine my teaching and editing bags of tricks to assemble a quality anthology of writing by the participants of the workshops I lead at Fordham University.

I'm confident that my ideal collaborators will be mature writers with ambitious, inspired projects in hand, and professional/academic writers who seek assistance preparing material for defense or publication.
