Portfolio

Welcome to my portfolio!

I am an adaptable, deadline-oriented, and absurdly thorough copy editor with strong skills in proofreading for style and sense. Thanks to 20 years of experience as both an in-house and freelance copy editor, I provide the much-needed assurance that your publications are as error-free and professional as humanly possible.

I offer three services—Proofreading, Copy Editing, and Substantive Copy Editing. Please note that it’s absurdly hard to showcase my editing skills since very few people want me to share a red-lined proof of their work that shows every tiny error. (Go figure.) To get an idea of my abilities, see the selected endorsements on this site (you can read several more by logging in to view my full LinkedIn profile) or contact me about editing a short sample (1,000 words or less).

Thanks for looking!
