I always admire a well-turned sentence, as well as a writer who can properly use an en-dash. As an editor, my goal is to always keep a writer’s voice intact, while polishing a piece for clarity, house style, grammatical errors, and factual accuracy. I started my (paid) career as a fact-checker and I consider careful research and fact-checking to be at the heart of all of my writing and editing projects.

In addition to freelance projects as an editor, my experience includes:

  • Working on staff at Garden DesignPrint, the National Magazine Award–winning graphic design magazine (winner of the 2008 and 2009 award for General Excellence); American Heritage, a wonderful history magazine; and Martha by Mail, Martha Stewart’s catalog.
  • Fact-checking articles for major publications, including Entertainment Weekly, Self, Vanity Fair, Martha Stewart Living, and Everyday Food.
  • And way back when, I started my (unpaid) career as an intern at three very different places: the young adult division of Henry Holt, (reading slush); the office of infamous literary agent David Vigliano (reading slush); and the Paris bureau of Women’s Wear Daily (folding clothes).
