Working with Michael was absolutely amazing, from our engagement photos to our wedding day. Michael was very friendly and helped us to relax when taking the awkward kissing photos. He was always willing to listen to my ideas for pictures and worked with us to capture them. I also really appreciated that when we weren't sure what to do he always was there to guild us. On our wedding day Michael was such a joy to work with, he made everything feel so effortless and when we were moving inside and outside it was all seamless. Our photos came out so perfect! I know our venue wasn't easy to navigate and Michael did above and beyond to capture all our special moments. Never once did he make us feel rushed. Michael also worked so well with our videographer which I know can be hard, but they teamed up and had great communication. I really appreciated Michael's attention to all the little details when I look back on my photos I get to see everything that I missed in the craziness. We are so happy to have worked with Michael and for the amazing memories he captured for us! I would recommend him to my friends and family with upcoming weddings! Thank you so much for everything!
Marian is one of the most ambitious, proactive and provocative writers I've ever had the pleasure to work with. While writing for DBW, she did a great job of eliciting valuable insights from industry thought leaders, identifying worthwhile new media opportunities for authors, and walking the walk when it comes to social media. Don't be fooled by her age; she's smart beyond her years.
Don is a considerate, accurate and helpful editor. I couldn't ask for better in thems of helpful objectivity as regards his hand on my copy. Addtionally, his supplemental comments are always useful and thought-provoking. Any writer with access to his talents is fortunate indeed.
What intelligent writing..... I am very impressed with his work.

If you want help navigating this tricky language of ours, let's talk on Skype. If you need a hand creating, polishing, or getting your writing published, I can help you organize your thoughts, structure your plot, avoid cliches and use fresh language, show rather than tell, achieve clarity with your prose, and create an impact on the reader. You can bounce ideas off me, decide on your game plan for a book or get it in perfect shape, revise your stories or poems before applying to a university, submitting to a magazine or contest, or compiling them in a collection. During my career, I've taught thousands of people to write traditional and non-traditional forms, and people whose vision doesn't fit the standardized, generic ideas of literature find I'm just the right person to understand what they're doing and help them find their niche. I'm open to other unique projects, and am looking forward to discussing them with you. My rates are competitive, and I truly care about you and your success. Looking forward to meeting you!
