My strong command of language helps me to either create creative new content or to bring out the best in existing writing. Throughout my editing career, I have always stood behind a simple yet important philosophy: make appropriate corrections but change as little as possible so as to not steal the writer's voice from their work. I am well-versed in the intricacies of Chicago, AP, APA and MLA grammar styles and have extensive experience working with novels, blogs, website content, government/business reports and a wide array of academic and research pieces. Additionally, my knowledge of languages (English, Spanish and Italian), literature and cultures is a direct result of extensive traveling throughout my life. Having not only learned these languages and visited various countries, I have actually lived for extensive periods of time in Europe and Latin America so as to truly understand what to say and how to express it.

    “Working with David was very comfortable, but yet professional. This was my first time working with an editor, as I am very much a novice at writing. He was very encouraging and gave me good recommendations. He also was very efficient and I received my project back within the week. I feel much better and more confident about my project after his editing and plan to use him for any future projects I might have. Also, I would easily recommend him to others. It was truly a great experience!”
