I made the move from amateur to professional editing in 2016, and am a member of the Editorial Freelancer’s Association. You can view my résumé here.
As an editor, my primary expertise lies in memoir, comedy, and horror. I am also well-versed in academic humanities; my scholarly interests are focused in affect, emotion, and other modes of fluid experience, especially as understood through film, literature, and philosophy.
More personally, I am a physics, design, and engineering enthusiast: my favorite question is “Why’s that thing like that?” This extends to social structures as well: I am deeply committed to issues of social justice and equity, and constantly challenge myself to be a better ally. When I am not editing, I enjoy intercontinental travel, puzzle platformers, and fawning over pictures of dogs.
In addition to being a Fulbright Alumnus, I hold a B.A. in English and Creative Writing from the University of Arizona (Dean’s List with Distinction, Magna cum Laude, Phi Beta Kappa), and an M.A. in Humanities and Social Thought at New York University.
