Who Am I?
I have been a copy editor since 1987 and have worked for many publishers
and journals in the health sciences (see list of past
and present clients).
I was born in Michigan in 1955 and grew up there. I studied philosophy
in universityfirst for my BA at Albion College, Michigan,
and then in the graduate school at the University of Toronto. After
1 term at Toronto, I moved to Athens, Greece, and worked as a freelance
photographer. For 7 years I photographed Greek archeological and
historical sites and museum artifacts. In 1987 I began work as a
freelance copy editor. I have lived in London since 1995.
My hobbies are yoga, t'ai chi, hiking, and reading medieval murder mysteries.
My lifetime passion is clarity of expression in English.
