Favorite referencing style
My preference is the APA style because it closely matches the instructions of my high school English teachers. I also find it to be the most logical. I use it as a point of comparison with other style guides.
Why I became an editor
I have a keen eye for detail, and I truly enjoy mastering the finer points of language, grammar, and all forms of reading and writing. I am a resident of the Baltimore-Washington metro area and I maintain residences in Canada and Austria. I also specialize in English for non-native speakers, and German/French to English translations.
Background and experience
I retired in 2018 after 25 years with the US Environmental Protection Agency. Previously, I was with the US Peace Corps in Washington DC and in Africa (Senegal, Chad). I currently provide editing and proofreading services for authors, university staff/students, and filmmakers. My specialties include English for non-native speakers and translations from German/French to English.
