Several years ago, my company contracted with Mark to produce HD corporate-branded videos for The Register's Top Workplaces in Iowa program. Video shooting, production and editing fell into this contract. On site shoots with business leaders were handled tactfully while Mark offered coaching and a sense of humor to the shoot. Good overall quality and partnership.

    Judy edited my lengthy and complicated dissertation with no problems. I can sum up her excellent work as being "on task, on time, and on budget." I have no reservations recommending her to others.

      I've had extensive experience working with LaVonne, both in a conventional journalistic setting (she was the manager of a newspaper I was editor of) and in a freelance capacity. I have absolutely no qualms referring my clients to LaVonne when I'm unable to take on a job. Not only are her proofreading, copy-editing and copy-writing skills topnotch, but her client rapport is also excellent; she has a knack for determining just what it is a client needs -- from quick-and-dirty proofing to in-depth content revision -- and delivering the agreed-upon service in spades. If you require direction in this way, she will definitely help you get your ideas across more effectively. Plus she's a delight.

      I was lucky enough to meet Eric through a colleague and boy, am I glad I did! Not only has he helped me write copy for my work publications, but has edited my personal manuscripts, and acted as tutored for my children from high school into college. His insights have certainly made me a better writer. Also, Eric has stepped in more than once to carry on writing projects when I was unable to; while maintaining the voice and tone of the piece seamlessly. Plus, his sense of humor and unique ability to succinctly capture the essence of an idea or fleeting moment in time is truly an amazing talent to behold. 5 stars plus five more stars, I say!

      I am a very good writer, and while I may not have the journalism degree or years of experience, I am confident in my ability to perform any writing task I am challenged to perform. Whether you need an article written (including research, I have a strong scientific background which has honed my critical thinking skills and allows me to weed out the nonsense), or an article edited to read in such a way that your point is clearly made, I can do it. If you need proof, give me a small assignment and I will complete it before you decide to hire me, since I am new at this and lack a long list of references.
