In addition to my day job as a contributing editor, I occasionally take on freelance copy editing or proofreading projects in my spare time. The books that I normally edit are titles in Christian theology, church history, and biblical studies, although I am always open to new subjects.
• I have a degree in journalism from the University of Richmond.
• I was a Dow Jones Newspaper Fund copy editing intern at the Los Angeles Times.
• I have an MDiv from Regent College, with a Christianity and Culture concentration.
• While at Regent, I edited the student newspaper, the Et Cetera.
• I am comfortable editing books that use biblical Greek and Hebrew.
• I am thoroughly familiar with the Chicago Manual of Style and the Society of Biblical Literature Style Guide.
• Over the years, I have spent countless hours reading books in theology, church history, and biblical studies. I am familiar with the major players in all these disciplines, and I know when their names and the names of their works are misspelled. :)
