As a freelance writer . . .
I currently craft personal essays and articles on a range of topics: food, parenting, artists, and profile pieces. Read some recent clips.
As a copywriter and communications professional . . .
I excel at partnering with an organization to create effective communications strategies and deliver the nuts and bolts. I listen deeply to tap into the aspirations of companies and their audiences, delivering work that expands brand value and connection. I especially enjoy working with nonprofits to help translate their culture and mission into stories that resonate, creating powerful outreach materials, web content, newsletters, and donor communications.
As an editor and researcher . . .
I have copy edited fiction, poetry, and academic book titles for large and small publishers and many magazines, essays, articles, and websites using a range of styles. I’ve helped authors navigate their proofs and fact-check mazes of academic footnotes. My interactions with authors and editors reflect my deep respect for the craft of writing and the integrity of a writer’s voice. I have worked on manuscripts and page proofs at all stages of development and created house style guides and brand books.

As a publishing consultant . . .
You’ll find me adept in collaborative problem-solving and project management. My experience directing operations at two literary publishing startups gave me insight into the publishing process from the ground up as I developed systems for contracts, editorial workflow, information architecture, print and ebook production, distribution, fulfillment, and accounting (including sales analysis and royalty statements). My network of contacts in the literary sphere includes distributors, book designers, editors, writers, trade organizations, press, printers, and venues. I’m also fluent in platforms and tools to help teams collaborate efficiently and effectively, juggling multiple simultaneous product schedules with multiple remote contributors.
