I have a PhD in biology (Indiana University, 2013) with publications spanning evolutionary ecology, bioinformatics, genomics, and botany. Over the last year, I've become a careful and helpful copyeditor of academic manuscripts in many fields, including agriculture, environmental sciences, psychology, clinical medicine, and foreign policy. I edit all documents, from dissertations to cover letters and CVs, for clients of all backgrounds, including ESL. Jobs less than 4,000 words are done in 24 hours. In addition to standard and substantive copyediting, I also specialize in rewriting cover letters. If you can provide me with some rough text and/or a CV/resume, I can provide you with a stellar cover letter that shows people just how much you have to offer. I'm also available for consultations on statistics and use of the R statistical computing environment. This service can range from troubleshooting and guidance of your analyses to writing R code and performing analyses for you.
I have a B.A. in English literature, a Ph.D. in linguistics from the University of Toronto, and 13 years of experience in academic writing and grant writing. During my academic career I have published 3 articles in top rated academic journals in my field, and 7 more as book chapters and conference proceedings. I have also presented my work at many academic venues, thus having perfected the skill to present any amount of information in a concise, clear, and engaging manner. During my graduate studies, I also regularly wrote grant proposals, and have managed to secure several highly prestigious federal and provincial grants. Over the course of 6 years, I have raised a total of over 130,000$ for my own academic research. My academic experiences have taught me that I genuinely enjoy the process of synthesizing ideas (my own and those of other people) into a compelling narrative. I started working as a freelance writer recently, and have already had experience writing grant proposals for a small non-profit start-up in Toronto, as well as writing and editing a couple of kickstarter projects. I greatly enjoyed this type of work, and look forward to more opportunities to help others with their research and writing needs. I believe that I can effectively apply my curiosity and skills to virtually any field of writing, editing or research.

Writing is a craft, and it is one that I have been practicing all my life. When most kids were learning how to walk, I was learning how to read; even then, I knew that books would carry me farther than my legs ever could. Eventually, I would go on to win numerous awards and scholarships for academic writing and poetry while pursuing my undergraduate and graduate degrees in English, culminating with the drafting of my first novel, written as a graduate thesis in Creative Writing. I enjoy working with new clients, but what I enjoy even more is continuing my working relationship with returning clients, who know that they can call on me without hesitation if they need good work done quickly. No matter what the needs of my clients, I find that one thing is always true: There's an ocean of white noise out there, and you don't want your message to get lost in it. Every client is a snowflake, and my job is to ensure that you don't melt into the background.
