Bio
I’m a professional editor with more than 10 years of experience with academic and nonfiction texts across the social sciences and humanities. My clients are academic presses, peer-reviewed journals, and scholars and graduate students publishing scholarly texts. I also work with nonprofit organizations. I hold an MA in East Asian studies, with a specialization in Japanese art and culture (Harvard) and a BA in political science and sociology (Williams College). I have additional content expertise in art history, anthropology, and museum studies. My editing projects often extend beyond these fields and reflect my broad intellectual interests.
