Work with Me

My personal mission:

  • Explore and critique truth claims in our culture (i.e., with the Socratic method)
  • Gain problem-solving techniques and insight from books and life experience
  • Reduce consumption and help build a more sustainable economy
  • Explore the meaning(s) of optimal health and strive to achieve it
  • Learn from the masters in literature, film and music
  • Work on my own creative projects and collaborate where possible
  • Continually pursue diverse living and working experiences outside my comfort zone
  • Learn languages and live a multilingual lifestyle

If you like my writing and you have a project, startup, activist campaign or other opportunity that aligns with my mission, I’d probably love to hear about it. Leave a comment or find me on social media.


I would also be happy to take you on as an editing client, if you need these services. I have experience editing for businesses, academics, students, a government official and a book author. Here are some testimonials from people whose work I’ve edited:

“Samantha’s work was amazing! I can only recommend her with the highest words of praise. In an extremely meticulous fashion, she corrected my English, but also made tremendously helpful comments about the internal logic and structure of the document’s argument. What makes her work special is that her grasp of the English language meets with a rigorous intellectual mind and outstanding logical reasoning powers. In addition to improving the writing a lot, her feedback also opened up insights into how to approach my future writing in a more effective way. Samantha stayed in touch and was exceptionally reliable throughout the entire process. In sum, I only have the highest praise for her work. She will be my preferred choice whenever I need an editor as well as a critical voice to develop my academic work.” Jacob Tischer, doctoral candidate at Free University Berlin researching Chinese religion and governance

“I highly recommend Sprole’s editing service.  It is professional, effective, accurate, and affordable.  The quality of Sprole’s service exceeds my expectation.  I will be certain to continue working with Sprole and will recommend her to my colleagues.” Dr. Chih-shian Liou 劉致賢, Assistant Research Fellow, Institute of International Relations Assistant Professor, Graduate Institute of East Asian Studies, National Chengchi University

“Thank you for your meticulous attention to detail and for your regular and prompt communication throughout the copy-editing process. Your thoughtful comments and reliability in meeting deadlines have resulted in my recommending your services to many of my colleagues.” Martin Mash, Deputy General Registrar for the City of Charlottesville

Thanks Samantha! During the proofreading, you helped me with a lot of things. During that time I learned about the Western logic process for how to make a thesis; I realized the big differences between Western thinking process and the Eastern style. You helped me to understand Western-style writing skills. I really appreciate that. God bless you.” Jong-Eun Park, graduate student at National Chengchi University

“Samantha helped me a great deal with editing a paper for an academic journal in the social sciences. She not only corrected my grammar and spelling very carefully but also gave me valuable feedback on the internal logic of the essay. I’m more than happy to work with her again and can recommend her without any doubts.” Maximilian Heimstädt, doctoral candidate at Free University Berlin researching digital openness with a focus on open data ecosystems
