~A Work In Progress~
I have been editing academic publications since 2009, but this website went live in February 2021. It is therefore imperfect, but good enough to begin a communication with you, who find your way here. To continue this conversation, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org, or call +1 (734) 531-9945.
I work with researchers in the social sciences, humanities, and life sciences to ensure that their arguments communicate effectively with their audiences. Whether you’re writing articles, reports, dissertations, or books, I can help your ideas shine through.

How Do I Know If I Need an Editor?
What is an editor?
A freelance editor (c’est moi) has many of the same roles and goals as a journal or series editor — but we provide more hands-on support during the process of manuscript writing, reviewing, submitting, and proofing.
How Do I Know if I need an editor?
- You’re spending time formatting your manuscript to a journal’s specifications instead of writing something new.
- You could use some expert, concrete, non-judgmental feedback.
- Thought of looking at that manuscript one more time makes you feel like running out into the street and just keep going.
- You want to ask for feedback from your colleagues but don’t know how.
Basically: no matter what stage they’re in, everyone needs (and deserves) an editor.

What are your rates?
I have a PhD in Anthropology and a passion for helping people communicate ideas.
Like you, I am a writer and a researcher. I know how important it is to communicate your research to others — whether they be specialists in your subfield, members of the press, or your best friend’s inquisitive uncle.
This website (which went live in February 2021) is imperfect and in process — but “good enough” as a draft. (It’s a metaphor, rather than an oversight — you see?)
