From a very young age, my passion has been proper grammar. I credit my family and my eighth grade English teacher for helping me to understand the importance of language. I studied the Chicago Manual of Style and manuscript editing at the University of Chicago, and I have leveraged that background as an editor, proofreader, and copywriter for the past several years. To me, there’s nothing more satisfying than a concise, clear narrative with accurate punctuation and grammar. I just wish the majority of Americans felt the same.
I have many passions outside the finer intricacies of grammar, but a few highlights include reading history, swimming, and volunteering with my alma mater, fraternity alumni association, and local animal shelter (for the dogs, obviously). My passion for history also extends to travel since it’s one of the best ways to learn history, and I’ve been fortunate enough to have been to 23 countries.
