You did the research, analyzed the data, organized your arguments, and created a great piece of writing. Now you need to make sure it flows smoothly, reads well, and looks amazing.

I can help. As an editor and copyeditor, I help people and organizations communicate their ideas to the world.

In seven years of nonfiction editing experience, I've worked on projects ranging from blog posts and ebooks to white papers and doctoral dissertations, and I've been editing my own last name for as long as I can remember. My background is in psychology and neuroscience, and my clients work in fields as diverse as marine mammalogy, geoscience, outdoor recreation, biological engineering, cognitive psychology, and personal finance. I'm fluent in AP, APA, CMOS, CSE, and SEO, and I'm comfortable working with house style guides and complicated university formatting guidelines, too.

Not sure what kind of editing you need? Get in touch and we'll see if I'm a good fit for your project.
