VERSATILE WRITER: I can write just about anything. I have professional experience as a copywriter, journalist, creative writer, and blogger. I have an instinct for matching the right tone with the right topic.
EDITOR: I can bring clarity and refinement to your manuscript without stifling your creative voice and vision. I edit a wide range of written work, including fiction, non-fiction, resumes, marketing copy, essays, and more.
PROOFREADER: I know the difference between compliment and complement, and I know when to tuck my commas and periods inside end quotes (answer: 99.9% of the time, if you live in the US).
MISCELLANEOUS CREATIVE: I am a former darkroom junkie. I tend to gravitate toward all things out of the ordinary. That includes eccentrics (i.e., other creatives), as long as you're kind.
ASPIRING NOVELIST: I'm currently working on a collection of short stories related to Chicago.
HOBBIES & INTERESTS: Reading. Writing. Cooking. Boxing. Mexican food (I'm classifying this one as a hobby). Collector of tchotchkes, antiques, and funky lamps.
