I provide editing services for think tanks, university policy institutes, scholarly journals and trade magazines. I edit everything from policy updates, commentary and research papers to lengthy white papers, scholarly articles, magazine pieces, dissertations and book-length manuscripts. 

After spending 18 years as a member of the Calgary Herald's editorial board meeting with politicians and other policy-makers to discuss a staggering variety of topics, it was only natural for me to transition to editing for academia and think tanks.  Incidentally, during my time at the Herald, I edited thousands of letters to the editor, op-eds and editorials. Looking to have your op-ed published by a news organization? I know how to edit it so it will get published.
