I’m a licensed educator and former scientist, but I switched career gears about eleven years ago. Or more like, I added gears. Editing and writing gears.
I did it for love. I’m absolutely enthralled with letters and symbols and the impressive job they do conveying meaning—images, moods, all that. It’s truly incredible.
Sometimes my editing and writing work involves education or science, or both. Sometimes it involves neither. But the projects I take on are always interesting or meaningful to me in some way. And most of the projects make the world a better place. At least, that’s my hope.
When I’m not editing and writing, I’m reading from a perpetual stack of books, hanging with my family, solving cryptic crosswords and logic problems, fumbling through sewing projects, and otherwise avoiding house projects.
