For clients tackling a website redesign or planning a new print publication, I can provide a structural assessment of existing content and recommend more efficient and effective ways to communicate through text and visual media. I also offer a range of traditional editing services, from proofreading and “light” copyediting focused on correcting errors and inconsistencies to “heavy” or substantive editing that refines the tone, logic, and flow of the text. In addition to the freelance and contract work highlighted here, I’ve held senior in-house editorial positions at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (2010), UC Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive (2002–10), and Reel.com (1997–98).
