I have worked as a copy editor and proofreader in the highly competitive New York City magazine publishing industry for 15 years, both full-time and freelance. Magazines I have copyedited include Women's Health, First for Women, Woman's World, FHM, Cosmopolitan, Quick & Simple, Every Day with Rachael Ray, Best Life, Metropolis, Fine Books & Collections, Star, and Celebrity Living. I was a part-time proofreader at The New York Sun (a daily newspaper), and I currently freelance for two online publications: PureWow and Tennis 15-30.
As copy chief at Best Life magazine, I had the pleasure of copyediting the work of such famous writers as Chuck Palahniuk, T.C. Boyle, and David Mamet. My copyediting career has given me opportunities to work on a wide range of subject matter: health, fashion, beauty, relationships, sex, parenting, finance, nutrition, entertainment, celebrity profiles, cooking, household tips, advice columns, careers, horoscopes, astrology, architecture, environment, essays, book reviews, music, film/movies, news, politics, obituaries, travel, regional guides, and fiction and nonfiction excerpts.
I am well-versed in several major style guides (AP, Words into Type, The Chicago Manual of Style) and I created the house style guides used at FHM and Best Life. I am very comfortable using InDesign, QuarkXpress, and Microsoft Word on a Mac platform.
