Editor | Project Manager | Ethnomusicologist
I am an editor, researcher, and project manager, with a history of academic writing and editing, based in Northern California and Arizona. I am originally from Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada, and recently earned a PhD in ethnomusicology from the University of California, Davis, for which I conducted a multi-year research project on musical locality and groove in Arizonan flamenco. I also have masters degrees in ethnomusicology (UC Davis) and musicology (Northern Arizona University). I possess special knowledge of music and academic research, writing, and publishing, with an affinity for integrated media and collaborative projects. I currently freelance as an editor and proofreader, and I have edited for scholarly publications including the Society for Ethnomusicology's SEM Student News, a biannual digital publication created and operated by student scholars; the online academic journal Analytical Approaches to World Music; and Writing on the Edge, an interdisciplinary journal focused on writing and the teaching of writing.
