The Clarity Editor


I edit your scholarly and professional writing—especially in the social sciences and international development—so you can be confident that your messages are coming across clearly.

Multi-language authors are most welcome!

I believe in equity and justice; I stand against hate and discrimination. I value integrity and seek to create respectful and safe working relationships with clients, colleagues, and others.
