I am a multi-talented professional with 20 years’ experience in book publishing. Whether the task is to proofread a manuscript or to overhaul a department, I offer both a microscopic eye and peripheral vision. By this I mean I diligently maintain high quality without missing deadlines by keeping in view the smallest details within the big picture.
I am motivated by connection and relationship, whether working as editor or consultant. I value being part of a community or a system that’s working together to achieve a common goal. I love the relationship one develops working on a distinct project, such as editing a book — how you get deeper and deeper into the manuscript and come to understand it better and better. But this also applies to working on a larger project, such as publishing a book, how you get deeper and deeper into the entire publishing apparatus, collaborating closely with the text and art, with associates and with the author, up until the finished product arrives. I love every step of the process, and every part has its value.
