Why “Silver”?

Silver Academic Editing was created in 2014, although my editing experience reaches back to 2004. “Perfectionism” could be my middle name, but my real middle name is actually “Silver.” Since it is easier to pronounce – and easier to remember – than my last name, Adelman, I chose “Silver” for the name of this site.
