Geoscience education, figure-making, & copyediting
I am also an independent consultant for textbook publishers.
I read, edit, and improve textbooks for accuracy, clarity, and effectiveness.
I am also open to designing and creating scientific illustrations and maps.
Please contact me if you are interested in working with me.
Here are some textbooks that I've helped out with.

Copy-edited each chapter of a revised textbook.
Created and organized end-of-chapter comprehension questions.
Generated an answer bank for over 500 questions to be used by instructors.
Compiled a database of spatial data for every field site and locations mentioned in the text.
