Favorite referencing style

Chicago is my favorite style; the gold standard for the humanities.

Why I became an editor

I am a freelance writer who became an editor after beginning work as a researcher and editor at an English language textbook publisher in Seoul, South Korea. This type of environment demands rigorous grammar skills and precise attention to detail. I learned to use the Chicago Manual of Style and branched out from there. Because of my background as an ESL instructor and editor, I can clearly explain any grammar point you may need answered.

Background and experience

I have been a freelance writer for more than a decade, but I began working as a full time editor while living in Korea.

Why I love proofreading and editing

Copyeditors are like plumbers, but for language. When we've done a good job, nobody notices.

Favorite book:

2666 by Roberto Bolaño is my favorite book.


I like to ride my bicycle, as the song says.

Editing tips:

On the final pass, use Word's “read aloud” function, or read the paragraphs in reverse order to ensure you focus on the words, not the ideas.
