Professional Freelance Editor and Writer

United States - Last active: 3 months ago - Tests: 4 - Portfolio: 2

With over 5 years of writing experience in journalism, magazine, web, editorial, legal, fiction and a number of other ventures, I consider myself a jack-of-all-trades when it comes to language. (I have actually also worked as a court and medical interpreter, as well.) My relationship to language, and writing in particular, has been the saving grace of my life. The writing life, by temperament and talent, best suits me. So it's a joy to offer quality writing/editing to those who appreciate the well-crafted sentence.
