I enjoy working with authors and editing their texts. I've been doing this since 1982.
From 1982 to 1997, I was writing and editing in Japan where I worked with many ESL writers.
After I returned to the United States in 1997, I began working with every type of writer: academic, scientific, financial, student, journalist, creative writer, and others.
On all projects, I follow my clients’ specifications and meet all deadlines.
I return an edited copy with all changes clearly indicated (tracked changes are in red).
I also provide numerous comments and suggestions. I then follow up promptly on all e-mail messages to resolve any pending issues.
The free edit option is always on, so you can see what I can do and I can see what you need to do.
My availability is seven days a week. I live in the Eastern Time Zone (North Carolina) and typically start my day at 6:00 a.m. and then edit until the day's work is done. I look forward to working with you.

I have edited more than 400 documents, of which 95% have been academic manuscripts in the life sciences, earth sciences, and chemistry. Most of my clients are ESL scientists from Asia, South America, the Middle East, and Europe. I thoroughly enjoy helping scientists improve their writing, finish their theses, and publish in scientific journals. I find learning about new scientific research exhilarating and consider myself fortunate to be able to spend my days clarifying the written scientific word. In addition to my academic work, I have also edited a non-fiction book, admissions essays, and personal documents.
I'm currently A PhD candidate in Molecular and Cellular Biology at the University of Guelph. I have experience writing, reading, and editing scientific articles and essays in several fields. Before my PhD, I completed a BSc Honors in Biochemistry also at the University of Guelph. I am the recipient of many academic awards, and currently hold a grant from CIHR.
