I'm a writer and editor who's been working with words professionally since I was 16. I got my start in journalism (specifically sports), then migrated to more content writing and editing after I left full-time journalism in 2016.

Since mid-2018, I've been freelancing full-time, and much of that work has been editing, both for companies and individuals. From editing short news stories in a twice-weekly agricultural newsletter, to helping shape marketing copy for clients in the coaching space, and copy editing a couple of book manuscripts, I've worked with a variety of industries and formats. I especially enjoy working with clients in the agricultural, technology, criminal justice, personal development, and media spaces.

To be an editor is to see every collection of words as a puzzle - and I'm excited to help you put the right pieces in order.
