Freelance Copy Writer/Editor

Location icon United States

I've studied and lived in the United States and Germany, offering copy writing and editing services to friends and colleagues in academia for years. I briefly worked at the U.S. Embassy in Berlin, managing cultural outreach and youth exchange programs as a temporary program assistant, and also helped edit "Global Histories," a student journal of Freie Universit├Ąt Berlin.

I'm an impassioned advocate of the free exchange of ideas and beliefs between groups of people, and wholeheartedly believe in the power of informed communication. Through my writing and editing, I actively seek to break down barriers to entry, with the goal of resonating with as many readers as possible on a personal level.
