I am, as they say, a Jill-of-many-trades. In sum, I’m an editor, project manager, and website creator. I copyedit, critique, and perfect everything from book-length manuscripts to one-page blog posts to dense, detailed manuals. I also manage projects (and people!) for product design and development agencies. Lastly, I make and manage websites in WordPress and Squarespace for small businesses, sole proprietors, and anyone in need of a virtual abode.

I have over a decade of experience in freelance and agency settings, and I’ve worked with everyone from design firms to authors to humanitarian organizations to tech startups. I’m a born orchestrator and an eagle-eyed editor, and I love solving puzzles and tinkering around with websites. A project manager at heart, I have a gift for nurturing multi-faceted projects from start to finish, whether I’m flying solo or as part of a team.

I’m based in Portland, Oregon, but work remotely and am open to one-off or ongoing projects. Have a gig in mind for me? Send me a message. I’d love to help you out!
