Work and School

View from the Gurnos across the Taff valley toward the Swansea Road Estate


I have edited a range of publications, including scholarly monographs in the humanities and social sciences for university presses, academic journals in the fields of health policy and classics, novels for commercial publishers, exhibition catalogs for museums and galleries, nature guides for state and nonprofit organizations, poetry collections, and general-interest and specialized magazines and journals.

Most recent clients include Cambridge University Press, Edizioni Nerbini (Florence), Harvard University Asia Center, ITER/University of Toronto, and individual scholars and writers.

Services range from straightforward copyediting, indexing, and proofreading to substantive (developmental) manuscript editing.


I translate from Italian, Spanish, and French and copyedit translations from these languages. The texts I have worked on include scholarly articles, monographs, and collections in the fields of literature, art history, philosophy, theology, poetry, and regional studies. Clients include Brepols, Duke University Press, Edizioni Nerbini, ITER/University of Toronto, and Wesleyan University Press.
