I'm an editor and writer who works with all kinds of authors—from academics to artists to lawyers to fiction writers—to help them craft the best text possible.

I'm based in Vancouver, Canada, on the unceded and traditional territories of the xʷməθkʷəy̍əm (Musqueam), Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), and səl̓ílwətaʔɬ (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations. I specialize in editing art publications and academic writing, in addition to fiction both long and short, with a spot of legal and business copy thrown in.

I have line edited and copyedited exhibition catalogues, critical essays, scholarly texts, and artist books for publishers and institutions such as Edith-Russ-Haus for Media Art (Germany), Hauser & Wirth (Swizterland), Fillip (Canada), Henie Onstad Kunstsenter (Norway), Haus der Kulturen der Welt (Germany), Malmö Art Academy (Sweden), MoMA PS1 (US), New Documents (Canada/US), Vancouver Art Gallery (Canada), and Whitechapel Gallery (UK), as well as for individual writers, artists, and scholars.

I’ve also written marketing, blog, and website copy for various businesses and organizations, as well as pop culture essays and reviews. Currently, my focus is editing but I will sign on as a writer for the right project.
