I believe in the tremendous power of writing. In no other instance can we send our message so directly and purely, without the myriad of biases and preconceptions imposed by our appearance, voice, gender, or class.
I write in several different genres, ranging from refereed manuscripts to concert reviews. Regardless of topic, the basics are always the same. I always aim for clarity, concision, and a little (but not too much) flair.
Below are links to both my academic and popular writing, including information about my writing services to help YOU reach your maximum writing potential.

I offer writing and editing services, with a specialization in fixing academic ‘clunkers’ (i.e. good research but with writing problems), in preparation for submission to peer reviewed journals.
I fix issues as basic as grammar, clarity and concision to more complex problems such as overall structure, staying on message, writing for your intended audience, and focusing the discussion.
