When I was growing up in New York, I knew that I wanted to be a journalist, but somehow the dream was set aside during my high school years, in which I immersed myself in reading historical novels and playing classical guitar. It was only later that I came back to my love of journalism by working for the university paper, where I did everything from editing copy and writing music reviews, to paste-up and layout.
I worked my way up the editorial ladder at various magazines before switching to technical writing and editing. Throughout my career, I’ve worked on marketing materials, legal documents, encyclopedia articles, and academic text. While studying for my master’s in the UK, I edited dissertations, which taught me how to edit in British English.
As an editor and a language lover, I learn something new every day. Working on manuscripts is like opening a new puzzle box and fitting all the pieces together into a perfect picture.
