I correct stuff.
I'm a proofreader, copy editor, and lover of language.
Many people refer to me as their "phone-a-friend"—curious, knowledgeable, and generous with her expertise. That's me.
The projects I’ve worked on range from sumptuous books on architecture and travel to scholarly artist’s monographs with detailed endnotes and bibliographies, and whimsical children’s books to topical newsletters. I read broadly and my interests are wide-ranging, so I’m comfortable working across a wide variety of subjects. I get up to speed quickly, my standards are high, and my work is rigorous.
Many of the jobs I work on also include research and fact-checking, so I’m at home and adept in those areas as well. I can’t resist investigating a fact that I’m not sure about!
I also provide coaching for writers and creatives who have a keen interest in taking their writing and conversational skills to the next level.
I graduated from Barnard College with a degree in Art History, and spent many years working in New York art galleries and museums.
I'd love to hear about the project you're working on, or are about to work on.
