Bio

Writer, editor and translator =
Correct, concise and complete


Note to potential clients: I am no longer a paying member of Proz.com but I am still available for consultations on potential projects if contacted directly. Additionally, I have worked as a technical editor with a fast-growing company for close to 8 years now.

I'm an American English-language (award-winning) creative writer and I work as an editor (copyeditor/proofreader), and sometimes, as a SP>EN translator. I have years of in-house and freelance editorial and writing experience in various arts, business and educational sectors.

I'm experienced with performing localization and I edit fiction and/or nonfiction manuscripts.

About me: My degree is in Writing and Poetics. I wrote and edited for independent small presses and arts organizations in the 1980s while managing a second-hand and antiquarian bookstore in San Francisco, CA.



Later I worked as a legal proofreader. This involved using verbal and sonic team proofreading techniques that are still in use today. I also performed cold proofreading (working with a single document) and comparison proofreading (master doc and corrected doc).



I worked on staff at two Mexican newspapers in the 1990s.

Later, I worked as an in-house proofreader for two major global finance firms In NYC and a little later, edited one of those international finance firm's emerging markets newsletter while teaching 2-week (24-hour) Proofreading intensives to unemployed theatre personnel under the auspices of the AFL-CIO.



I studied magazine copyediting at NYU in NYC, and subsequently freelanced for a number of lifestyle magazines. So began my foray into the world of working as an independent language professional.



I've lived in 4 countries and have edited everything from literary manuscripts (pre-publication, among which is an award-winning novel by an American author), business book manuscripts, textbooks, technical manuals and user guides to a multitude of other kinds of print and web copy for large and small business and arts organizations, ad agencies and individuals.

I've written, edited and localized texts in just about every subject area (see Writing and Editing tabs for brief examples).

Do you need help editing, writing or rewording a text aimed at a particular audience? I am excited to work with artists and arts organizations, in particular. I've helped a number of creative professionals redo their portfolios and find better-paying and more satisfying work.
