  • Communication: The best results happen when the writer and editor understand each other’s intentions. 
  • Learning: There’s always something new to learn from my clients and colleagues. 
  • Words to live by: “You write to communicate to the hearts and minds of others what’s burning inside you, and we edit to let the fire show through the smoke.” —Arthur Plotnik
