I was born in California but spent my growing up for the most part in the Middle East, where my family lived in Beirut, Lebanon and Jeddah, Saudi Arabia for a total of 16 years. I attended high school in the U.S. and Switzerland and college at the University of Illinois and Cal Sate San Jose, and did a semester abroad at Oxford University.

I later worked in Japan for six years for The Japan Times and Japan National Broadcasting (NHK). I worked for three different newspapers and magazines in the U.S. when I returned to the states as a copy editor and reporter. I won two awards for journalism during that time. I currently work for the Educational Testing Service (ETS) of Princeton, NJ as a telecommute TOEIC (Test of English in the International Community) rater for Spoken English test takers.

My work experience in writing/copy editing and proofreading English and the fact that I am very comfortable working with ESL individuals who need help proofreading and editing their English-language papers and documents.
