This page is home to some of my finest work as a writer, editor, and photographer. Some links to writing samples are to PDF files; if you cannot open PDFs click here to download the required software, Adobe Reader.

General Writing

Music Criticism


I am chief copy editor and fact-checker for all printed and digital publications at my employer, North Lake College. My previous experience as a copy editor, at Pearson, cannot be disclosed because high-stakes standardized tests are top-secret materials.

I was editor-in-chief and lead copy editor of the Rice Standard online magazine from September 2009 to May 2010, having filled the same roles for a print version of the magazine since early 2008. Click here for a full view of my editing process at work (PDF).

I have experience editing to AP and Chicago styles and to British English, and, for North Lake College and the Standard, created brand-new house style guides.
