I have an excellent writing style and the ability to adapt to many subjects and registers. I have published numerous scholarly works in philosophy, the humanities, and the social sciences, including books, journal articles, and conference papers.
Past and current clients include: The University of Chicago Press, Stanford University Press, Fordham University Press.
Additional experience with legal documents, medical reports, and marketing materials
Ability to conduct thorough and detailed subject research
My experience includes working as an immigration court interpreter (Lionbridge Interpreting), Pro bono asylum interpreter (The National Immigrant Justice Center), civil court proceedings (Cook County Circuit Court).
I maintain familiarity with African French (especially Togo, Cameroon, and the Democratic Republic of Congo) and have conducted independent research on Francophone Africa and U.S. asylum law.
I offer English-language proofreading and editing services for publications and oral presentations. I have extensive knowledge of all the major style guides (Chicago, MLA, AP) and offer reference formatting/verifying and bibliography creation. For conference papers and other talks, I can help streamline and simplify texts, which can be especially useful for non-native English speakers presenting in English.
