About me and my editorial services
I am an editor, writer, educator, and student contributor to life. I hold a Certificate in Copyediting from the University of California, San Diego, and have completed the Editorial Freelancers Association’s program in Developmental Editing. Additionally, I hold a Master of Theological Studies and a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology.
I enjoy creative writing, and I am readying poems for submission to a publisher.
Breadth of experience is an invaluable asset for an editor. My uncommon breadth of life experience enriches his editorial approach. I have served as a Peace Corps volunteer, advocated at the United Nations as an NGO representative, lived the One-L experience at a top-tier law school, and served newly arrived migrants in Boston; as an educator, I have taught courses in English composition at home and abroad, including as a member of the faculty of one of Korea’s most prestigious academic institutions.
I am the founder of POV Editorial Services. I hope that the information provided below will be helpful in your search for an editor, and I look forward to discussing if my services may be right for you.
