I am a seasoned and straight-forward writer and editor with experience in multiple backgrounds: blogging, copyediting, dramatic writing, academic writing, essays, technical writing and journalism.

I hold a BA in English (creative writing emphasis) from the University of Denver and an MFA in Interdisciplinary Art from Goddard College. I'm an avid reader, a classical violinist and a crossword puzzle addict. What fuels me as a writer and editor is the challenge I always find in producing creative and clever content that is meticulous in its research and clarity of usage and grammar conventions.
I offer a variety of different services, all of which are detailed below:
- Editing & Proofreading
- Consulting / Critiquing / Coaching
- Writing and Transcription
- Fact Checking & Research
The way I work: you send me your document in Microsoft Word format, and I will make changes using the program's tracking feature. When I'm finished, I'll send you two copies of your document: a revised copy with changes not yet accepted, and a final copy with all changes accepted.
Approximate Turnaround Time:
1000 words or less: 3 business days
1001-5000 words: 8-10 business days
5001-10,000 words: 15 business days
Over 10,000 words: contact me
Manuscripts: contact me
