Editing and Proofreading

From spelling, structure and style to grammar, punctuation and voice, my red pen never runs out of ink.

A true generalist — with genuine expertise.

I’m neither a generalist nor a subject matter expert. I’m both. That means I can write about pretty much anything — and have.

A writer and journalist for more than 20 years, I’ve written on subjects as diverse as classic cars, celebrity chefs, pampered pets, smart cities, fighter jets, Ebola, mega bridges and Beanie Babies. (That’s right: Beanie Babies. Don’t judge.)

Along the way, I’ve developed a potpourri of expertise in subjects like AI, aging, geospatial intelligence, critical infrastructure, environmental sustainability, national defense, disability rights, LGBTQ+ issues and more.

Breadth plus depth equals me.

Why Me? Do the Matt-th.
