Verified identity


I have edited a wide variety of titles for authors published by the University of North Carolina Press, the University of New Mexico Press, and Cornell University Press and publishers such as the Oxford University Press, the Gale Group, and Rowman & Littlefield.

I've also copyedited submissions to periodicals such as the Berkeley Business Law Journal, the Korea Journal of Buddhist Studies, and the Journal of Artificial Intelligence Research.

I am extremely familiar with several different style guides — especially Chicago and APA — and specialize in the formatting and editing of bibliographies, footnotes, endnotes, citations, reference lists, figures, and tables.

I bring broad intellectual and cultural interests to any project. All of this comes with a pretty decent sense of humor.

Some of my niches are history, politics, current events, the environment, philosophy, art history, and technology such as artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning (ML), automatic identification systems (AIS), and data analytics.
