I have a Ph.D. in Sociology, and I enjoy the opportunity to keep my writing and research skills sharp by working with others on projects that can take advantage of my academic background. My concentrations are in qualitative research methods, social movements, and sociology of emotions; a recent lit-review project has also given me a broad background in Network theory. My passion is helping other conduct great research! Besides my academic training, my work history and general computer/video game geek-ery has resulted in me being well-versed in most common software applications and a smorgasbord of random skills (Google Adwords intergration, web development/design, UI principals, etc.). The way I usually put it is that no matter the setting, I'm the one everyone goes to with their computer problems. I also worked for a patent lawyer for a few years, so I'm pretty familiar with US patent law, particularly post-grant litigation (and I helped write reexam arguments).

Hello! Thanks for reading. I have an M.A. in English literature from California Polytechnic University Pomona. I have edited papers for submission to journals and conferences for my peers, mentored and sat on a review board for a colleague's thesis, and edited dissertation chapters. I enjoy editing because it exposes me to other interesting fields and ideas. I like to learn new things, and if I didn't, I wouldn't have been insane enough to go for my graduate degree.
Writing can become a roller coaster of emotion. The best piece of advice I have received when it comes to self-editing is that you sometimes have to take your favorite part of the work and cut it out. Oftentimes, the part we love the most is the weakest part. This is why sometimes an outside view is invaluable.
As your editor, I can help you cut the fluff, organize your thoughts, and provide constructive criticism to bring out the potential of your work.
