Client Testimonials

Mark has excellent communication, writing, and story-telling skills but his talents go beyond that. He has a knack for framing issues in a larger context and for devising editorial strategies that will reach the broadest audience. With his encouragement and editorial input, we responded to the Flint, Michigan-water crisis and produced an op-ed article that placed that and other recent events in context. Not only did he drive the editorial process, but Mark successfully pitched the finished story to The New York Times op-ed page. Such a placement was a major breakthrough and achievement for a small, relatively unknown organization. I couldn’t have done it without Mark’s initiative, insight, and generous help.
— George McGraw, Executive Director, DigDeep
I have known Mark for about 15 years. He was recommended to me when I was in search of a writer to assist in a book I was doing in association with ABC News. He is intelligent, hard-working and sensitive. He brings a wealth of experience and savvy to what he does and anticipates what you want and gets it done. He has an imagination which takes work to places that enhance its value. He is a gifted wordsmith, able to describe complicated subjects in accessible language without losing nuance or accuracy. This is a rare skill these days.
— Todd Brewster, Author and Journalist
Mark was the impetus behind my article on Web 2.0, published in Baseline. He not only diligently edited my piece, he was the reason I wrote it in the first place. He saw the value in the topic and the relevance of the timing. His foresight was key to the whole endeavor. He demonstrated remarkable patience, dexterity, skill, strategy and persistence as we altered the key points. I thoroughly enjoyed working with Mark and would seek him out if I ever had a need to write another article.
— Frank Faeth, former MasterCard executive
