Creative editor, researcher, writer, & consultant

United States - Last active: 18 hours ago

I am a professional writer and social science researcher living in New Orleans, Louisiana. I specialize in editing, proofreading, writing, and research. I have an M.A. in Anthropology from Columbia Univ., as well as a B.A. in Honors English from San Diego State Univ. I have versatile skills and interests and can cover a wide range of topics in the arts and sciences. As an anthropologist, I am well versed in cross-cultural perspectives, enabling me to write for diverse audiences. In addition, I have over ten years of experience as a freelance proofreader, editor, and tutor. On the creative side, I love to work with horror, science fiction, and fantasy, though I am certainly open to other genres. I am skilled at breaking down and paraphrasing highly technical language, which is advantageous for technical and science writing. In all areas, I have a meticulous editorial eye for grammar, spelling, formatting, and content.
