About Alexander

I am a recent graduate of UC Berkeley, with a bachelor's degree in Political Science. I am fluent in German, know French very well, can read Latin and Ancient Greek, and am currently teaching myself Russian and Sanskrit. My greatest interests include reading literature in the original language, classical music, the visual arts, classics, and linguistics. As a student of the humanities, most of my education has consisted of developing my writing skills. In addition, I have edited a number of philosophical essays published on a website which the New York Times called "The Greatest Web Site of All Time" in a feature article.

When working on your writing skills, I will focus primarily on making your prose clearer and more precise. I do not espouse outdated "rules" about good grammar, most of which, in fact, have been contradicted by modern linguistic research (e.g. the prohibition against splitting infinitives). I am pragmatic. I believe in letting the writing speak for itself, and, above all, in revision.
