About Me

I'm lucky. I get to work on values-driven projects that feel great. I edit academic papers that expand empathy, for example, and I coach international academics growing their English skill set. I edit grant applications for non-profits, and write bios for artists and visionaries. 

I have over a decade of experience writing and editing. My clients get published in leading academic journals, have their poetry appear in national literary magazines, and win their federal grants. To name a few. Send me a message to see how we fit. 

I would love to support you and your projects. 




I was not sure that I needed to spend money on editing services for my course papers. I was not sure an editor would fully understand my academic writing and keep all my ideas in place as well as the style of my writing. But I found the editorial services more than helpful. My papers look great – they are much more readable; the readers concentrate on my ideas and do not shift their attention to my mistakes or errors. But I got more than just edited papers – I got some really great patterns and tips for improving my writing in English.
