I am a publishing professional with 12 years' experience. I've copy edited and proofread hundreds of books for young readers for Scholastic, Penguin Random House, and Hachette Book Group, and developed activity book and science projects for Klutz in Palo Alto and New York. I most recently served as copy chief of San Diego Magazine for four and a half years, where I edited all editorial content for the flagship monthly and the company's custom client publications.
I also have extensive experience fact-checking, transcribing, and typesetting in InDesign. My first and best loves are fiction and science, but I'm open and adaptable for taking on any project and my rates are competitive. Drop me a line and tell me what I can help you with!
Currently, I am mostly looking for editing work, but will consider writing assignments as well. Please see my website for clips.
