"Where to start??? He is HANDS DOWN the best post production person I have ever worked with. His knowledge runs across the board; from work flow to color mastery to print to masks and manipulations.... As a photographer, having someone like Michael on your side makes any job or project that much smoother, exciting, innovative and FUN. He is the digital computer GURU."

" Michael has done very high quality creative work for New Creative both as a freelancer over the years and since we hired him full time last year. His intuitive and fresh visual approach to communicating our marketing message was matched by a high degree of technical graphic design know-how and an unparalleled work ethic. I would recommend Michael without reservation. "

"Michael was a pleasure to work with at New Creative. He has great creativity and is hardworking. He helped improve our packaging process with vendors and was very detailed in his specifications which is important to reducing costly mistakes and rework.
He works well within a team and has a "can do" attitude. Michael would be an asset to any graphic design team."
