I am a freelance editor and university professor, with a PhD in Art History (Northwestern University). I have over 20 years experience working with academics, fiction writers and artists on articles, books, presentations, short stories, novels, artist statements, project, exhibition and grant proposals, and a wide range of innovative and experimental texts.
I work closely with my authors to achieve a fine symmetry between the technical and artistic aspects of their projects. I understand the complexity of thought in scholarly argumentation and the importance of nuance in cultural communication; I am particularly sensitive to the unique challenges of giving voice to non-verbal forms of creative practice.
I have worked with authors at all levels of English writing experience, from award-winning novelists and distinguished academics to novices and non-native speakers. My editorial interventions aim to provide clarity to the text and bring out the unique voice of each writer. In all cases I protect the confidentiality of my clients.
I also teach courses in academic and creative writing, modern and contemporary art and theory, philosophy and museology in undergraduate and graduate university programs. I am well versed in methods of textual, visual and historical analysis, critical theories, continental philosophy and Mahayana Buddhist philosophy; I read French fluently.
I would be delighted to speak with you about how I can help you communicate your ideas with precision and authority.
