I am a Seattle-area editor and writer with a background in history, journalism, philosophy, mythology, archaeology, and music.
B.A. History, State University of New York, College at Fredonia

I provide professional copy editing services to the academic, marketing, technical, and nonfiction communities. My focus is on editing history-related documents, including academic books and articles, dissertations, memoirs, biographies, and historical fiction. I also have extensive experience with marketing and business materials, software documentation, and website text. I help clients make text readable, reliable, and trustworthy, transforming complex content into clearer, more accessible text. I believe in maintaining an author’s voice and creating mutually respectful author-editor relationships.
