    I have two things most contractors don't have: passion and time. I value proper spelling and grammar in all written work almost more than the work itself and I revel in finding the best phrasing possible of any message or idea. My goal as an editor is to make your writing as professional, intelligible, and delightful to read as possible. I firmly believe that it is my responsibility to detect every blemish in your writing, big or small--from typos and capitalization to subtle inadequacies in expression. If spice is what you need, my extensive vocabulary helped me score higher than 97% of the country on the written portion of the SAT last December. I am also familiar with both British and American English and know when and how to adhere to their respective conventions. I hail from the small town of Swarthmore, Pennsylvania, where I attended Strath Haven High School and discovered my love of writing and editing in the monthly "Panther Press." I will be attending the University of Pittsburgh's Dietrich School of Arts and Sciences in August, where I intend to continue my writing and editing practices for the university's literary magazine, "Hot Metal Bridge." Until then, however, I have plenty of time to help improve your writing quickly and efficiently.
