My background is in economic geology and geochemistry. I am also a former United States Army infantryman. My experiences as a scientist and soldier taught me to know my capabilities and never promise more than I can deliver.
I am skilled at conveying ideas in a concise and thorough manner, whether I'm writing instructions for frying eggs or reporting the results of a laboratory experiment. I have expertise in science writing, particularly the earth sciences.
I adjust my writing to effectively target the intended audience, from schoolchildren to highly educated adults. I make boring topics more interesting using creative nonfiction techniques when appropriate.
COPYEDITING AND PROOFREADING:
I specialize in improving flow; reducing clutter, wordiness, and redundancy; and passive voice elimination. I also check for grammar, word choice and usage, punctuation, capitalization, and consistency. I can copyedit to MLA, AP, and Chicago style standards, or any specific standards provided by a client.
