I asked Michael to write a short article for a blog I curate. I had an idea in mind and Michael was able to write a quality piece from the vague outline I provided for him. He sent me his work earlier than our agreed upon deadline and was quick with edits and turn around. I had very little feedback to offer, but he seamlessly worked my edits in to the finished piece. It was an easy an enjoyable process because Michael was receptive to my vision for the piece and professional with the writing process. I’d be quick to recommend him and happy to work with him again.
