Think of me as the "Sherlock Holmes" of writing--combining an ... moreeye for minute details with critical reasoning to provide a creative solution for your writing or research project. I provide writing, editing, and research consultation, primarily focused on the following subject areas: Ancient Near East - The majority of my academic training at Harvard and elsewhere falls within the ancient civilizations and cultures situated along the fertile crescent (Mesopotamia, Syria, Israel/Palestine, and Egypt). I actively read the languages and scripts written by scribes in this geographic region (e.g., Akkadian cuneiform, Egyptian Hieroglyphs, Aramaic, Hebrew, Phoenician, and Canaanite). I know the history (and archaeology) of this region from the introduction of writing (3000 BC) to the turn of the era (1 BC). My clients range from those working on the academic side of things to those focused on addressing a more popular audience. Linguistics - My ancient language training led me to the more formal study of linguistics. The development of languages and language change (historical linguistics) is my focus, but I have helped clients with various issues in linguistics, including language typology, phonology, morphology, syntax, and semantics. Bible - The Biblical text (both Hebrew Bible and Greek New Testament) was my starting point in my academic training and most of the other areas that I have studied have served to deepen my understanding of that text and the world of which it is a part. I read both Hebrew and Greek fluently and maintain a massive library of the most up-to-date scholarship in Biblical studies. Some clients contract me to work on projects directed towards academic audiences, while others are looking for material appropriate for Sunday school or home Bible-study groups. As both an Evangelical Christian and a scholar, I know the concerns of the faith community as well as those of the academic community and have been able to successfully work with both. less
