Professional writer, editor, and proofreader since 2000
I work within your voice and style to present you and your business in your own best words.
Being a writer makes me a better copy editor, because I know how it feels to have my words tweaked. Writing is my passion, my art, and my business. I want you to look your absolute best in writing.
I was an assignment editor at Wired News during the first dot-com boom, and I loved it. I produced and co-hosted the proto-podcast, Wired News Audio Spin. I have worked for media companies, tech companies, advertising and marketing agencies, and individuals. My MO is always the same: make the words work for the story, the reader, and the client.
COPY EDITING and PROOFREADING
- Proofread advertising and marketing decks for national consumer campaigns
- Copy edit ad decks, websites, apps, videos, and presentations
- Copy edit and fact-check instruction manuals and internal communications
I am adept at adopting a person’s voice, to convey both personal and professional messages. Much of the professional writing I have done is under NDA, including public statements and white papers, but here are some pieces I can share:
I wrote this voter outreach packet advocating for San Francisco to procure its energy from renewable sources.
Jane Kim for School Board
I wrote this booklet for winning San Francisco School Board candidate Jane Kim.
Milton Marks for City College Board
I wrote this informative voter outreach guide for Commissioner Marks’ successful reelection campaign.
I have a separate page for that.
