I'm the former editor of the Harvard Law School alumni magazine, now working as a freelance writer and editor. I write on many topics, with a special interest in the arts, law, politics, and popular culture. I've covered prisoners' rights, the death penalty, world affairs, and religious issues such as atheism and Buddhism. I've profiled leading figures in government, sports, academia, business, and nonprofits. My story on a day in the life of a gubernatorial candidate won a national magazine award. In addition to magazine and newspaper work, I've produced press materials and Web content for public television. Please click on "Recent work" at left for my latest stories.

As an editor, I hated when writers would give me stories loaded with spelling mistakes, typos, and factual errors, so I make sure I give my editors clean copy with a sense of style – and always before deadline. I also know from firsthand experience that busy editors often hire freelance writers to save time, only to find themselves with a story that's too long, unclear, and disorganized. I can fix the story for you quickly (and maybe next time, you'll hire me to write it for you). I did it here and here, where you'll find before-and-after versions of stories I edited for magazine clients. I can do major renovations, copy editing, or just a final read-through of your publication to give you peace of mind.

Please contact me, and I'll make your life easier.
