I have 12 years experience in a wide variety of editing practice, from book manuscripts to academic papers, journalism and corporate documents. I'm familiar with the latest conventions and practices, including many reference style guides (Chicago, MLA, APA, Harvard), in-house guides, and copy-editing marks. I have a very diverse and liberal education across a wide variety of fields.
