Since meeting Mike in 2009, I have hired him for several projects, including two annual magazines and a faculty profile project. Throughout the process, Mike demonstrated professionalism, creativity and skill and met all assigned deadlines. Timely, responsive and detail-oriented are all words I would use to describe Mike’s work.

For our annual Willamette MBA magazine, “Directions,” Mike worked on several articles from conception to completion and took the initiative to thoroughly interview each subject. He required little direction and the end result was of high quality and superior caliber.

The faculty profile project involved organizing, interviewing and writing about eleven different members of the Willamette MBA faculty. Not only did Mike acquire information for each person interviewed, his written descriptions and biographies capture each person’s personality and unique style. That’s the mark of a good interviewer and writer – no easy task.
