hire me

I’m an editor, researcher, and Ph.D. who loves clear writing. I hold a B.A., M.A., Ph.D., and certificate in Professional Technical Writing. Previously, I taught college writing courses in New York City for eight years, and my own writing has been widely published in newspapers, magazines, books, and academic journals. I love working on projects related to prison abolition, public education, agriculture, and environmental justice.

For projects large or small, I’ll stay true to your style and deliver compassionate edits on deadline. I bring a careful eye and critical mind to writing across subjects, drawing on my ten years of experience working with authors in the arts, humanities, and sciences. My clients appreciate my intuition, my expertise, and my prompt service.

I’m available for:

   ⌯ proofreading
   ⌯ copy edits
   ⌯ line edits
   ⌯ reference work
   ⌯ research and fact-checking.

My specialties include:

   ⌯ copy editing technical work (including projects in APA)
   ⌯ line editing near-final drafts of nonfiction prose
   ⌯ advising on best practices for scholarly citations.

Drop me a line and let me know how I can help, or hire me today through Upwork.
