Testimonials

What my clients, partners, and colleagues have said about working with me:

"Michael’s left brain/right brain style made him a unique treasure on my team. I felt confident entrusting him with projects ranging from deep dives into consumer insights to crafting worlds and characters that resonate. His willingness to jump in on amorphous projects and turn them into something concrete and original is bolstered by his enthusiastic demeanor, one you will hope rubs off on team members who’ve lost their childlike spirit to the everyday drudgery."
"Michael excels at research and has an innate ability to move any project forward from infancy through completion. He works well independently, and is an adept problem-solver with excellent communications skills - he wrote and edited countless newsletters, blog posts, video scripts, and Spotify ads, always with a keen eye for relating to the intended audience."
"Michael’s attention to detail is second-to-none, and I can always depend on him to go above and beyond in assignments. He has performed editing and writing tasks for our small community newspaper with quality results, and his ability to take and respond to feedback is excellent...and his sense of humor will make your day a little brighter!"
"Michael provided thorough and informed editing under a tight timeline. He did all this with little warning and without having direct access to game development, working quickly (and with little direction) to bring himself up to speed on game play, objectives, and intended audience. His ownership of the process was completely reassuring. I'd happily work with him again and very likely will!"
"Michael has been a godsend for our project. We needed a backstory, and in short order he took charge and helped to create a full world complete with history, lore, dialogue, and countless other items. He gracefully balances development of the big picture with responsiveness to tactical needs and urgent requests. Michael is a joy to work with. He is a master of words, and an essential and invested member of the team."
"Michael is wonderfully thorough and professional. He has a very keen eye and is very patient, but quick to act. He is someone I can trust blindly to get the work done and not have to worry about it later."
"Michael is a dedicated worker, and he went above and beyond in seeking to understand the specific needs of our project. He edited like a champ!"
"Michael is among the most thorough editors we have worked with. He is continuously responsive and always open to learning and adapting to new technologies, which helps to streamline our workflow. We can always count on Michael to get the job done at a moment’s notice."
"Michael is always on point. He works fast and knows which questions to ask to really improve our products for the consumers. We publish boardgames, and having a well written manual is half the game. Michael's edits serve as a blue print for every other rule set we produce, be it German, Dutch or French."
"It’s been a pleasure working with Michael. Our rule book became more comprehensive and easier to follow after his editing. His touch took our ideas and drafts to a professional level."
"Michael’s skill as an editor is why I trusted him to work on my own manuscript. He is diligent and insightful, and he was an asset to us and our authors."
"Michael was very thorough and detail-oriented...he provided great suggestions and really polished our text. And he's very pleasant to work with!”
“I have enormous confidence in Michael's work. I am sure that our board games have better rules due to his great work.”
