I am a trained technical writer with industry experience in copyediting, editorial work, and design. I have 3 years experience working as a copyeditor for a news organization, 7 years of design work with various organizations and groups, and 10 years of writing center consultancy work with primarily Mexican American, ESL, and international undergraduate and graduate students. I have worked with clients on academic manuscripts, website design, grant projects, and white papers—among numerous other projects. I’m confident working with MLA, APA, and AP style (for journalism), and I have much experience working with science writing and technical documents.

"I have enjoyed working with Wil for the last five years since I was a grad student. He is very knowledgeable and skillful in editing and making comments. He helped me a lot in journal submission and wrapping up the projects. Though we are not in the same field, he is understanding the concepts from other fields very quickly and helped me to deliver them clearly in writing. Not just for the journal submission, but he also helped me a lot to communicate with non-technical audiences."
