Who I Am

I am an independent contractor working from my home in Marin County, California. With a PhD in English and over six years of experience as an in-house editor for a San Francisco Bay Area publisher, I have a solid grounding in both academic and publishing practices. Although I have experience in a wide variety of subjects and formats, most of my projects fall into one of three categories:

  • scholarly papers and books, particularly those in the humanities or social sciences
  • nonfiction trade books, often on cultural, recreational, or environmental topics
  • art publications, such as exhibition catalogues, coffee table books, and artist monographs

My clients include well-known trade and scholarly presses, museums, business organizations, university professors, small specialty presses, and self-publishing authors.

Please contact me if you have any questions or would like to discuss your editorial needs. I’d love to hear from you.
