Service Description

I specialize in copy, developmental, and line editing; content creation for the web and print; and creative writing services, like editorial consultation and ghostwriting.

I'm exceptionally skilled at editing for tone, voice, grammar/syntax, style guide compliance, and audience needs. I am reliable, communicative, and accustomed to aggressive project deadlines.

While working on Microsoft Pinpoint, I wrote and edited tech-marketing profiles that were suited to the needs of customers.

I have a rock-solid literary skill set. I currently perform line editing for the first nation-wide legacy preservation service, crafting print biographies from hours of raw interview transcription. I have served as a Senior Reader for a nationally-recognized literary agent, writing manuscript reviews and providing editorial support. I edited voice-over narration for Waste of Time, a critically-acclaimed documentary.

I am happy to provide samples upon request.
