I am a freelance editor based in New York City. While I have worked on a variety of projects, I specialize in editing fiction and essays. If you are writing a novel, I can help you fine-tune it and get it ready for submission. I  also provide feedback and criticism to fiction writers who want to finalize their projects. During the process, I will provide you with detailed explanations of what needs work, and we can always meet, email, or talk on the phone. In the past I have worked with writers for weeks or even months, providing them with consistent and in-depth editing and commentary.

If you don’t know where to begin, I am happy to talk and help you decide what is best for your project. We can meet, talk on the phone, email, or Skype. Feel free to contact me from anywhere in the world.

I attended the Bronx High School of Science and received my B.A. in English Literature from Reed College in Portland, Oregon. I studied the classics of Western literature – from Homer to Shakespeare and Melville – as well as German literature in the original. In addition to this foundation I have studied and I frequently read contemporary literature – fiction and non-fiction.
