Service Description

For me, working as a writer and editor is more than just work. It connects me with amazing people, places and events in a way that no other work can. My experience is global, ranging from the U.S. to Brazil. I only work on a few projects at a time so that I can give my clients very personal and careful attention. I do not own or participate in a business with multiple writers. You can count on me to be available for your specific writing and editing needs.

I am American, born and raised in the U.S., and English is my mother tongue, but I'm also fluent in Portuguese.
