As an editor, I have worked primarily with non-native speakers of English to transform their text into fluid, natural language. My ability to quickly grasp new concepts and edit in the style of the intended audience has served me well.
I have a solid foundation in comparative grammar which taught me the importance of being detail-oriented and methodical. It also paved the way for other experiences, such as designing educational materials for school-aged Menominee Native Americans, or working as a Italian-English translator for a contemporary art gallery in Florence, Italy. I’ve studied a multitude of world languages from differing families, with a focus on Italian, Latin, and Ancient Greek. My experiences with these various languages have contributed to a deep understanding of grammar and the English language in general.
