about


me in 140 characters

I am a freelance writer, editor and translator. When words come together to form a cohesive thought that insightfully communicates an idea, it fascinates me. If you are in the midst of writing an academic paper, a memoir, content for a blog/website or just about anything else, and you need another prospective and perhaps some hearty editing, let me help you. As a tutor who has helped many students of various ages with their writing, I make an amicable coach. As a person with a voracious appetite for learning, I enjoy reading almost everything and will happily delve into whatever content you have created or need help creating. As an astute editor, I have a penchant for grammar. As a translator who translates from Italian to English and vice versa, I capture the spirit of the text with precision.
