About me

 

I am an experienced, excited, and eager writer and a versatile and meticulous editor. I have a strong background in digital writing and editing on a wide range of topics and industries. I never miss a deadline, and thrive both alone and when working with a team where I can learn, build on, and strengthen my skills. My passions include history, cooking, travel, Science Fiction, and reading, and I very much hope to one day finish Infinite Jest.
