Profile

On time and under budget. That is the motto I have had in my 5 years of experience as a copyeditor. I’ve edited everything from research papers to undergraduate and master's theses to short stories to recipes to newspaper and magazine articles. I also have some experience with cover design and magazine layouts. My areas of expertise are linguistics and translation studies (Spanish and Arabic to English and vice versa), but I am always open to trying new things. I am an enthusiastic hobbyist and home cook, and you can bet I’ve dipped my fingers in almost every handicraft out there. As an avid reader, I am interested in editing fiction most of all, especially within the realms of fantasy, romance, and mystery. Clients note that I am easy to work with and that I leave their work intact but just a little more polished and professional.
