I have eight years’ experience as a full-time technical editor, copy editor, and proofreader for Microsoft, Microsoft Press, and Boeing, and as a freelancer have edited and proofread a wide variety of assignments including software user guides, programming guides, textbooks, technical books, magazine articles, doctoral dissertations, and even a role-playing game sourcebook. Work on those projects included developmental and substantive editing and rewriting, copyediting, proofreading, and preparation of tables of contents and reference lists.

I am skilled at applying APA style guidelines to academic papers and am familiar with the Chicago Manual of Style and Scientific Style and Format. I can work in Microsoft Word, Adobe Acrobat Pro, PowerPoint, Excel, or on paper.

I currently work for Innobuddy, a Beijing education company, editing science and technical journal articles for publication in American journals.

I have worked as a freelance copyeditor and proofreader for two publishers: Esri Press, publishing books about geographic information systems (http://esripress.esri.com/); and No Starch Press, publishing books about computing and computer languages (http://nostarch.com/).

Some of the book manuscripts I have copyedited and proofread:
