I began freelancing in November of 2012 with a piece on winter outdoor recreation. Since then I have sold a number of outdoor and nature-related pieces, as well as doing some science writing. I am particularly proud of the opportunities I have had to write on issues of cultural heritage, an area where a number of my interests converge.

Copyediting and proofreading
I have done the stray bit of copyediting and proofreading for academic and commercial clients. Feel free to contact me if you are in the market for either service. I particularly enjoy working with English as a Second Language writers.
