About Me:
OVERVIEW
Professional editor, writer, and graphic designer. Wordsmith. Visual communicator. Pixel worker.

My expertise in a combination of fields makes me uniquely suited for complex work such as:
—Coaching writers in story and craft
—Editing fiction, graphic novels, or children's literature
—Writing, editing, and designing resumes

EDITING / PROOFREADING
I work at the sentence level, polishing the syntax, encouraging style, checking consistency in content and layout, fixing grammar issues, and proofreading. I've been a grammar tutor since 2005, a copyeditor since 2009, and a writing coach and fiction editor since 2010. I’ve worked with graphic novelists, children’s authors, authors, pastors, and professionals.
