The guru of



I'm an experienced writer and editor of personal, academic, and public discourse works. Let's work together to take your project higher.

While earning my Ph.D. in English Literature, I have written and edited for numerous audiences, genres, and purposes. These include scholarly reviews, research projects, essays, and pedagogical materials; personal narratives and technical writing such as memoirs, manuals, and self-help texts; and public discourse works like fiction, blogs, product copy, creative nonfiction, and so on.

Having taught English and Rhetoric/Composition for nearly a decade, I am also an experienced tutor of reading and writing at high school and college levels. Subjects include: literary analysis; reading comprehension; writing (conducting research; planning and drafting; structure/organization, argumentation; responsible documentation; grammar/style); and help composing or refining college and scholarship application materials.
