Service Description

As an editor and former assistant at a literary agency, I have years of experience with developmental and line editing, project management, and evaluation of literary proposals. I also have experience writing marketing copy to promote books and authors. I have worked on books about the psychology of Mad Men and Andy Warhol; project managed illustrated books on real life mad man William Helburn; the backstage world of Yves Saint Laurent and Kurt Cobain's last photo shoot; and edited two editions of a book of film criticism by David Thomson, as well as the forthcoming biography of the abstract painter Agnes Martin and a history of Brown University. I acquired and am at present editing a biography of the abstract sculptor and art world superstar Louise Nevelson, to be published in Fall 2016.

I have edited Adam Gopnik, Jon Savage, Geri Haliwell and Jerry Schatzberg, among others. I am responsive, capable, and highly organized, with a strong aesthetic and literary sensibility that will bring an extra polish to your project.
