My mission: to bring elegance and clarity to your text. Attention to detail is my specialty. I have a natural affinity for written English and over 15 years of editing and writing experience. I edit, proofread, and rewrite fiction and nonfiction, and translate from Japanese to English. I also design print layouts including books, book covers, articles, reports, essays, brochures, flyers, and more. I am originally from New York and am now based in Wolfville, Nova Scotia, Canada.

Service Description

As an editor, I give attention to even the smallest details, so that your text is consistent, correct, and clear. I will do what it takes so that your message and your style shine through, and your document fulfills its intended purpose. Your words and sentences will flow logically and smoothly, with a voice that is uniquely yours.

Since 2004, I have been translating from Japanese to English. I have worked in a wide range of genres, including promotional materials, essays, philosophy, fiction, and poetry.

In my design work, I aim for a layout that is clean and easy to read, yet eye-catching, professional and elegant. It is always my goal to create a design that is attractive, professional, and easy to read, yet also matches its content. Each project starts from scratch, and I am always open to trying new styles and techniques. The most important thing is meeting the needs and tastes of each individual client.
