Overview

Fresh writing: In my 15 plus years as a writing teacher and editor, I have learned how to create documents characterized by their fluency, clarity and precision. Do you urgently need new copy for your website? Do you want an intransigent text translated into readable English? Do you need someone to double-check your commas? Whichever your task -- you will love the final product: clean, elegant text delivered on-time.

The backstory:
I hold a PhD in Performance Studies from New York University where I taught writing-based classes to undergraduates.
I have also taught writing-based classes at San Francisco State University, California College of the Arts and Sonoma State University.

My editing skills were honed at the prestigious MIT Press journal "TDR: The Drama Review," where I served as Managing Editor. I also assisted Professors Ella Shohat and Robert Stam with research and editing for their anthology "Multicultralism, Postcoloniality, and Transnational Media."

My published written work includes:

“Performing Citizenship: The Concert for New York City and the Construction of Post-9/11 America,” in Patriotic Dissent: Staging Theatrical Protest After 9/11, ed. Jenny Spencer, New York, Routledge, forthcoming

Dissertation: “Transgressive Babymaking: Narratives of Reproduction and the Asian American Subject;” awarded The Franco Coli Dissertation Award,...
