Primary contact: 


Restructuring documents, untangling arguments and smoothing out sentences are my passions — but not at the expense of an author’s style and ideas. When I have finished my work, you will exclaim with pleasure, “This is my document, all right, but it reads so much better than it did before!” I have close to 20 years’ experience with “no fingerprints” editing for public sector, private sector and academic clients, including extensive work for the federal government. Particular interests are non-fiction books, journal articles and reports.
