Profile

I spent three years editing for Diply.com and one year managing the company's team of copy-editors. While there, I wrote their style guide and helped solidify the company's editorial voice. Prior to that, I was the head copy-editor for Word Hoard, an interdisciplinary graduate journal in the arts and humanities.

I have also translated essays by philosopher Catherine Malabou into English, published in Thinking Catherine Malabou: Passionate Detachments.
