Professional writer and editor from Charlotte, NC. I have been working in the journalism and English writing field for over 10 years. I am skilled in editing both articles and creative fiction pieces, critiquing work, and am experienced in writing for a variety of audiences. I can easily tailor my style and tone to fit changing readership and am no stranger to research-heavy projects.
I am detail-oriented, thorough, and appreciate communication between myself and those with whom I work. I consider myself a grammar “enthusiast” and genuinely enjoy both writing and editing as a hobby and as a profession.
