My 27-year editing career has encompassed books, newspaper, magazine copy, and science writing. I have been engaged by travel, cultural, museum, spirituality, and local-interest book publishers, including John Muir Publications, Museum of NM Press, and Red Crane Books.
For ~7 years, I worked in-house for a company that specialized in photo and laser technology.
