Mike is not simply defined by his excellent writing, but his way of realizing a vision. We’ve worked closely on a number of projects, and each time he has produced a story that is fresh, interesting, and uniquely targeted at our public relations goals. He has an uncanny ability to find what makes a story special and create a sense of humanity in 500 words or less. Mike’s communication, planning, and project management allow me to keep hand-holding or editing to minimum. Mike is simply a great listener, very intuitive, and adept at aligning with marketing goals.
