    "Excellent proofreading, going well beyond looking for typos and grammar mistakes." "Thank you very much! This was truly an exceptional job!" "Great Service!" and "Reviewer made some extremely valuable suggestions. I will always use this editor for any future work and recommend them to my colleagues." Just some of the comments I've received from clients since I began working as a freelance editor in 2022. I provide a wide range of editing services, from proofreading and copy editing to line editing, developmental editing, and indexing, for clients looking for help making their writing clear, concise, and compelling. I edit in Microsoft Word and return a redline version showing my corrections and suggested changes, with explanatory comments where appropriate. Although new to Upwork, since 2022 I have edited journal articles, master’s theses, and doctoral dissertations on subjects ranging from an analysis of the UK's system of dual-class shares, to whether the legal definition of genocide should encompass political grounds, to the environmental aspects of fast fashion, and everything in between. I recently edited and indexed a book on the unique problems of employing those with criminal histories, which will be published in 2024 by Springer Nature. I have also edited nearly a dozen travel and how-to books for CZYK Publishing, an independent publisher in the United States. I have extensive experience, and particular expertise, in working with clients for whom English is a second (or third) language. I am a retired college professor of business, an attorney, and a judge. I have certificates in editing from the University of Washington and from the University of Chicago, a doctorate in accounting/business/economics from the University of Minnesota, and a law degree from the University of Michigan.

    I'm an editor with a passion for helping writers craft compelling stories. I can guide revisions at all levels from the macro to the micro: characters, plot, setting, voice, conflict/tension/stakes, realism, coherence, clarity, grammar, diction, and spelling. I can assist with resolving flat dialogue, redundant content, errors of proportion, garbled structure, cliched phrasing, point-of-view jumps, and repetitive sentence rhythm. Working together, we'll make sure your novel starts in the right place or refine a short story scene with stronger verbs to give it that extra punch.

    I've cut my chops wearing many hats at small businesses, learning Graphic Design, AV Post-Production, Writing, and Email Marketing from on-the-job experience. If you need a Swiss Army Knife of skills - I'm your guy! Whether it's video, photo, or just plain words, I can help realize goals and bring labors of love to fruition. During my latest full-time role, I helped the brand double the brand's blog output within the first year of employment, took over a Lead Email Marketer role, managed CS for all web sales, and assisted a Lead Videographer with overflow post-production. Additionally, I've created and currently produce 2 separate podcast productions that publish on a weekly basis in both video and audio formats. - Editing, Proofreading, & Content Writing - Photoshop/Illustrator/Premiere Pro - Above-and-Beyond Attention to Detail!
