My go-to style guide is The Chicago Manual of Style, and I switch regularly between Canadian, British, and American English. (As a copyeditor based in Vancouver, Canadian English—stuck halfway between British English and American English—is my home and native tongue, so that's what you’ll find in these pages.)

I have edited essays in subjects ranging from contemporary and historical art, English, and sociology, to law, geology, and forestry, as well as experimental and fiction manuscripts.

As luck would have it, the principles of writing aren’t subject dependent—although writing style and voice certainly can be. The only thing I might need from you if you are, say, a physics major, is a list of discipline-specific terms, along with an idea of the desired tone.
