New York bred, Baltimore based. Lover of ideas, mornings, and coasts. Believer in the good fight and the common good.
I have a PhD in creative writing and more than a decade of experience in nonprofit communications and program design and implementation.
I research and produce content for general, trade, and academic audiences, with an affinity for topics in arts and culture, humanities, social sciences, and education. I edit in Chicago, MLA, APA, AP, and GPO. Chicago is my favorite.
