The greatest part of editing is enabling brilliant ideas to shine. When you write something, you've worked hard on it, and you know your stuff. I love editing because I get to help your writing along; to make sure it isn't bogged down by complicated language rules. I believe great ideas should flourish, and it's my privilege to make them more accessible with my editor's hand.
I genuinely enjoy most types of editing, because every document is an opportunity to learn something new, whether it's invigorating academic research, intriguing fiction worldbuilding, or the professional particularities of a resume or cover letter.
I've worked in college admissions, academic publishing, and children's and young adult publishing, giving me a little extra edge in those areas. I hold a special place in my editing heart for social sciences and subjects related to social justice.
It's a bit boring to just say I like reading, so I'll confess to another favourite hobby: playing Minecraft!
