Ryan cannot accept editing requests at this time.
I'm a lifelong writer with years of professional editing experience. I have an immaculate eye for punctuation, syntax, and grammar, and I'm trained in improving the more subjective aspects of writing like tone, clarity, and flow. Maintaining your voice is important to me, so I'm not just correcting mistakes when I edit your work—I'm getting a feel for your writing style so that I can enhance it without losing sight of what makes it yours. I've edited everything from novels to dissertations, so no matter what your writing is or why you need it edited, you can trust that I'll give it my full attention.
Answering that question is like picking a favorite child! I'm most experienced in editing college papers and am always glad to do so. Critical analyses, theses, research papers, personal statements—I've worked with them all and never get tired of them. I also enjoy editing reviews, novels, short stories, and poetry.
My main areas of interest are media culture, art, and philosophy, so I'm always excited to edit writing on those subjects. I also love to work with subjects that I'm unfamiliar with—it gives me a chance to learn while I edit. I could keep going, but I'd end up listing every type of document under the sun.
I have a master's in Film and Media Studies, so my deepest expertise lies in areas related to media. In a more general sense, I'm an expert in academic writing, the humanities, philosophy, and critical analysis. I'm also extremely well-versed in several major style guides. In the most general sense, I'm an expert in writing! Send in your stories, journalistic work, college papers, in-depth analyses, blog posts, emails, thousand-page novels, anything—I'm the editor that'll make it shine.
I'm a film critic, so I spend a lot of my time watching and writing about movies. Beyond that, I'm an avid reader of philosophy—particularly existentialism—and a longtime video game enthusiast. I also love a good nap, especially with my lil' cat Millie.
