I’m a licensed educator and former scientist, but I switched career gears ten 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 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, solving cryptic crosswords, sitting on my front porch, hanging with family, taking walks, and otherwise avoiding house projects.
