WORDS ARE MATTER. MAKE THEM MATTER.
My mission is to inspire people to discover and nurture their passions and to realize the joy and potency of creative expression. I bring immense energy, experience, and focus to this effort.
As an editor, I am as passionate about your writing as you are. I utilize my critical distance to amplify your insights and the integrity of your vision and cast a penetrating beam of comprehension and perspective on your composition. Together, we discover and distill the meaning and significance of your work to produce captivating, lucid, and fluid prose. I align my approach with your professional orientation, methodology, disposition, and intended audience. I assist aspiring and veteran authors in a variety of genres and mediums and writers who need more creative inspiration and direction.
I specialize in academic and developmental editing. I excel at rendering academic manuscripts into a more accessible form, and I enjoy working alongside clients to transform intellectually sophisticated arguments into readable prose. Editing fiction and nonfiction provides me with an opportunity to play with language, expand my apprehension and appreciation of form and genre, and guide the evolution of a literary manuscript as an exercise in both art and craft. Whether you possess a hazy semblance of an idea in need of brainstorming and support, an analytical essay seeking an authoritative voice, or an academic manuscript that demands greater clarity and synthesis, I attend to people at all stages of their creative journey.
I am diligent yet efficient, attentive, and reliable. I bring an acute focus, attention to detail, curiosity, and flexibility to each project and client. I work hard to align expectations at the outset, establish clear time frames for deliverables, and facilitate clear and consistent communication throughout the collaborative process. Throughout, I remain open to your voice and to the premise of your work and committed to the value of your vision. Every manuscript and every client presents distinct opportunities and challenges. As a team, we work together to set priorities, establish attainable goals, and create a final product that honors your intentions and represents your best effort.
