Overview

I worked for Southeast Missouri State University Press, a small press located in Cape Girardeau, for 9 years where I helped with the editing, indexing, and page designs of many books, chapbooks, catalogs, etc. I have been freelancing for the past 2 years, where I have helped local businesses, community organizations, and individuals successfully complete their projects.

Editing, indexing, and designing are my true passions, and, whatever your project may be, I'm here to help you present a professional-looking product.
