cropped-Business-Card-Back-1.jpgSkills & Experience

Over the past seven years I have managed, edited, and/or written a variety of print publications in the realms of travel and adventure, history, science, and beyond. I love guiding books from developmental stages through to final proofing, and every step in between. My skills include:

  • Developmental editing. I’ve shaped initial vision and content, conduced research, crafted outlines and flat plans, and worked with design and photo editorial teams to craft an inspiring product.
  • Substantive and copyediting. I’ve performed substantive line-by-line edits on illustration-rich publications, essays, and marketing content for print and online.
  • Research. From the early stages of a projects’ development to final factchecks, I’m adept at ensuring that all content is consistent, accurate, and up-to-date.
  • Proofreading. My background in illustrated publishing has made me particularly strong in editing and proofing not just info-rich manuscripts, but also images, graphics, and cartography.
  • Writing. I have applied my experience and love for travel and the outdoors in writing engaging marketing copy, articles, and full manuscripts like National Geographic’s Greatest Parks of the World and An Uncommon History of Common Things 2.
  • Teaching. I have developed and taught workshops on travel writing, fiction writing, and the many trips and tricks that a writer needs to get the job done. I have taught a six-hour workshop for writing centers like Writers Victoria aimed to teach writers how to turn their adventures into compelling narratives that anyone can insert themselves into.
