Service Description

My life interests and experiences are widely varied. Ever since I learned to read, I knew that the world was so wonderfully faceted; I wanted to discover more about all of it. Since then, I have had my hand in the fields of chemical engineering, working at Disneyland, theatre, mutual funds, motivational paraphernalia, Air Force satellites, linguistic anthropology, legal documentation, real estate development, neurosurgery, and food blogging. I have had the opportunity to edit for and write about most of those areas and disciplines. I also own (and avidly read) an extensive collection of style and usage resources.

Editing is my passion; I have the background to confidently take on any job—however big or small.

Some random facts:

* I have worked as a Technical Editor for the Air Force Satellite Control Network.
* I received my Bachelor's degree in linguistic anthropology at UCLA. I have intensively studied common English usage in historical and everyday contexts.
* My favorite punctuation mark is the em dash. It's so lovely and versatile.
* I am a member of American Mensa.
