"One of the best freelancers I've ever worked with!" - Professor of Management *
I'm an award-winning writer and experienced editor known for my crisp, clean style and exceptional flow. I received my PhD from Yale (with honors), worked briefly in finance, earned tenure at UT-Austin, and now teach part-time at an Ivy League university. I've published two scholarly books with prestigious presses plus over a dozen peer-reviewed articles. Not everyone can edit scholarly work, but I can... better than anyone.
I can also help with admissions, personal statements, grad applications, and cover letters. I've supervised dozens of master's theses and doctoral dissertations, edited countless professional letters, and polished scores of winning fellowship proposals.
