Production Editor, Academic

Job description: As part of our academic team, I oversee the production of a varied list of titles. I work with our authors, freelancers and suppliers to guide each project to completion in a timely and professional manner.

Favourite book: An American Childhood by Annie Dillard. Few authors write with such affection for and curiosity of the world; it’s a joy to see through her childhood eyes. And she writes beautiful sentences that stick with you.

Hobbies: I spend a good amount of time thinking about what I’m going to cook and eat next, so I like being in the kitchen and sharing food with others. I also enjoy reading and writing nonfiction, as well as spending time outdoors through walking, cycling and camping.

If I were an animal, I would be a … cat.  They can certainly be independent and may come across as aloof, but they often surprise with their affection, curiosity and bizarre silliness. And, like a cat, I tend to get a lot done at night.
