    I've been writing, editing, proofreading, and translating (French-English) for a living since 2000. I'm currently editing a large-audience website; I'm looking for extra income and a greater variety of projects, particularly translation. I enjoy such work immensely—my translation of an Octave Mirbeau novel is due for release in 2015. After working at student publications, I cut my teeth at a major metropolitan newspaper (the Chicago Reader), where for five years I proofread for 40 hours a week while writing news and arts columns for the paper as well. I recently worked for two years at a an advertising agency (Geometry), where I was the Chicago agency's sole proofreader. I was also responsible for translating and proofreading materials for our French Canadian clients. I have worked as a court interpreter and I've written three novels in English; I have degrees in French and Classical Letters, and I've worked with AP, Chicago, and academic styles.
