I have eleven years of experience working as an editor. From book manuscripts and audio transcripts to press releases and ELL programs, I’ve worked on a little bit of everything, but I specialize in editing creative writing.
I’m an Arizona State University Sun Devil (originally studied Spanish and history, but then switched to communications and media studies) who has successfully passed copyediting classes through UC San Diego Extension. I am a member of the Society for Editing (formerly the American Copy Editors Society) and the Editorial Freelancers Association (EFA). I was one of the jurors for the Speculative Literature Foundation‘s 2016 Working-Class Writers Grant, and I was one of the featured speakers at the 2017 Tallahassee Writers Conference and Book Festival.
Bonus trivia: I am married to my best friend, and we have four amazing kids. I love them all dearly. Our collective fandoms include Studio Ghibli, Star Wars, and Doctor Who. My book collection borders on literary hoarding, particularly my collection of dictionaries. I have lived in a few different countries and in various states across the USA. I sincerely hope to one day see world peace become a reality.
