In 1996, I began 11 years of foundational, onstaff experience working as an editor and writer for a social science publisher in Los Angeles. In 2001, I began offering editing and production management directly to authors and publishers. Serving as managing editor, copy editor, and production editor for textbooks and journals, I have worked for leading academic publishers, including Oxford University Press and Sage Publications. I have edited over 50 higher-ed textbooks, guided over 70 trade books to publication, managed 7 academic journals, copy edited hundreds of scholarly articles, and collaborated on 5 international museum exhibits, all working with global teams of authors, publishers, printers, and designers.
For corporate clients, I have written or edited an expansive variety of content, from corporate histories and speeches to brochures and proposals, including government and community outreach. Beyond editing and writing, I have worked as an archivist managing 16,000+ documents, represented publishers and authors at conferences, founded and taught a youth poetry program in Virginia, and served as a judge and presenter for my county park district’s annual writing competition.
I hold a B.A. in English with a minor in creative writing from Kent State University, have coursework in the UCLA Department of Journalism, and completed Harvard Law School’s CopyrightX Course on intellectual property law in 2015.
