Aloha Savant Staff, Authors and Writers Around the World,

My name is Alex and I am thrilled to become a proofreader in the Savant family. I was born and raised in New York, where I recently graduated from college. It’s a great place to be, but I’m ready for new adventures and dream of living, at least temporarily, in Europe or the west coast. Sitting still isn’t something I’ve been good at, physically or mentally; I like to dabble. As a child, I played violin and danced ballet. After ten years, I stopped both of those to take up guitar and form a music group. I started out at New York University studying music business but quickly transferred into communications, which I studied until graduating. Now I seek involvement in the publishing industry. One of the few constants amid my rapidly changing interests has been my love of books. Another has been my passion for animals and my yearning for living an ethical lifestyle, which prompted me to take up animal studies at NYU and to, eventually, commit to veganism.

I am eager to begin working with Savant as a proofreader and hope to become a full-time editor down the road. My dream-job generates images of myself pouring over manuscripts and delving into the nitty-gritty details of editing. I first flexed my editing muscles when interning for a literary scout and have been expanding on them at Watching America, a news website, for the last few months. I am excited to continue building those skills at Savant.

I look forward to working with you all!

Alex Mullin
