Nice to meet you!

I am a developmental editor and author platform designer finishing my Ph.D. in Romance Studies at Cornell University.

I began editing and designing platforms because I enjoy facilitating conversations and helping others think about big questions (including the writing-revising-editing process). 

After teaching writing at the college level and instructing graduate students how to teach it as well, I realized that I could have a bigger impact on scholarly conversations by guiding academic authors toward the most compelling versions of their texts. 

I am a trained literary critic and spend my time as a doctoral candidate analyzing rhetoric, argument construction, characterization, gender dynamics, and dialogue in early to mid-twentieth century Italian novels. Se parli italiano, scrivimi pure!

As such, I see more than just the apparent meaning of a paragraph, sentence, or word. I question the possible implications and significances of each element of a text to ensure its clarity and efficacy.

Purposeful prose serves the ideas, the readers, and, in so doing, the author who brings them together.
