I'm not some faceless, corporate clearinghouse. I'm Jacob...
I have a PhD in human geography from the University of Hawaii at Manoa and a master’s degree in anthropology from Memorial University in Canada.
My dissertation was based on two years of fieldwork in the southern African country of Namibia. I investigated the social-economic shifts caused by widespread and pervasive structural unemployment.
I've published more than eleven peer-reviewed academic journal articles. My publication record is fairly interdisciplinary as I have papers in geography, tourism studies, and education journals. Many of these journals are highly regarded in their fields (and have Impact Factors greater than 2.0).
These experiences in higher education—combined with more than three years in university writing centers—give me the scholarly vantage point needed to edit publication-level humanities, social science, and education academic writing.
Though originally from the USA, I now live in beautiful Windhoek, Namibia. When I'm not editing scholarly writing (yours and mine), I'm probably outside photographing birds and other fauna.
I look forward to working with you!
