Experienced Professional Writer, Editor, Proofreader, Copyeditor
I'm a former managing editor of an NYC-based print publication. My responsibilities over my eight years there included developing, writing, editing and proofreading short and feature-length content covering news and politics, food and drink, media, lifestyle, and especially arts and culture: film, literature, music, art and performance.
I wrote reviews, blurbs, features, and interviews, and oversaw the work of staff and freelance contributors, while coordinating with the art staff and production team. I also blogged daily and was responsible for formatting and monitoring web content across several sections of the magazine.
I'm proficient in Microsoft Office and Adobe Creative Suite programs (including InDesign), and have experience doing academic research at the graduate level (I'm currently pursuing an MA; estimated completion in May '14).
