Read the nice things that some of my happiest clients were kind enough to share about my writing work.

"I have worked with Justin professionally for 5+ years on miscellaneous projects, and I have seen him make tremendous strides as a wordsmith.

Michael Shirey, Art Director at Gay City News

"I’ve employed Justin’s talents and efforts over the past six years as a project manager, copyeditor, presenter, and creative writer.  The combination of language skills, wit, creativity, and organization he brings make him a valuable asset in communicating the message and in getting the job done - with a smile."
