I have a deep fascination for language and the myriad ways it can be manipulated to express ideas. Reading and writing are, in my experience, among the most satisfying pursuits a person can engage in. I have always been drawn to editing as I feel it brings together the enjoyment of reading with the gratification of creating beautiful prose.
I graduated with a Masters in Philosophy and since then have worked in various sectors including marketing, technology and publishing. My editorial experience includes commercial copy and academic research, but fiction remains my great passion.

Stories in all forms, from movies to video games to graphic novels, have been an integral part of my life from a very young age, but I’ve always loved books in particular. As soon as I could hold a crayon, I was creating elaborate picture books on stapled sheets of printer paper. Once I learned to write, written narrative became my obsession, and it’s remained so ever since.
I earned my BA in creative writing from the University of Washington, and I later returned to earn a certificate in editing. I’ve discovered that, almost as much as I enjoy creating my own stories, I love helping others polish, perfect, and streamline their work—breaking down a scene to discover precisely what isn’t working, hunting down plot holes and inconsistencies, and digging for the exact turn of phrase that will make a piece of dialogue sing.
Since beginning my career as an editor, I’ve had the opportunity to work on a wide variety of material (including memoirs, novels, novellas, and short stories) in multiple genres and at multiple stages in the publication process. Helping bring books to print is both a dream come true and an honor, and I’m thrilled to be joining the talented team at Evolved!
When I’m not editing, I’m often hiking, dancing (swing and Texas two-step), playing video games, or—of course—reading. After a recent move from Seattle to Austin, I also spend more time eating tacos than the average human.
