Favorite referencing style
APA is my favorite because it is the most widely used style.
Why I became an editor
I have many years of experience in journalism, writing for newspapers and online publications. I wanted to take what I've learned and help others improve their writing. Any writer, whether they're Stephen King or Stephen Nobody, can benefit from having a fresh set of eyes read their work.
Background and experience
From 2014 to 2017, I worked in the newspaper industry, writing for the Columbia Missourian and the Washington Missourian. I covered sports, education, and other general assignments. From 2017 to 2020, I worked in marketing, working for SERVPRO of Franklin County (a restoration company) and COG Network (a cryptocurrency company).
Why I love proofreading and editing
I love being able to make somebody else's work better. It not only helps the other person improve their writing, but the experience makes me a better writer, too. I also enjoy learning about a wide range of topics through editing.
The Four Agreements by Don Miguel Ruiz
When I'm not proofreading, you can find me at the gym, on the couch reading or watching TV, or playing guitar.
I like to read a document out loud to make sure I'm not glossing over any mistakes.
