Copy Editing • Proofreading • Copywriting in Publishing, Entertainment & Advertising


With a background in writing and editing across a variety of mediums, I love helping new work debut to the world.

I've served as a copy editor, copywriter, and film programmer in the realms of book publishing, the arts, and entertainment/luxury advertising. Working for organizations such as the Paley Center for Media, IFP, Penguin Random House, 20th Century Fox, Team One, and Trailer Park has given me a wide view of the modern cultural landscape. I'm excited by the process of uncovering new experiences through writing, as well as finding the perfect phrase to evoke an image or emotion.

Originally from North Carolina, I've sojourned in New York, Santa Barbara, and now Los Angeles. I majored in film studies at Yale and received my master's in film and media from UCSB. Recently, I was a fellow in the Los Angeles Review of Books Publishing Workshop at USC, where I developed an event concept that applies a film festival model to showcasing new works of literature to publishers.

Some favorite touchstones and topics: Roger & Me, The Muppets Take Manhattan, Hedwig and the Angry Inch, Neuromancer, Blade Runner, The Windup Girl, The OA, Mary Roach, Robert Frank, and the 21st-century distribution revolution in film, TV, and books.
