“Lee is one of the most talented copywriters I have worked with over my 20-year career. He not only has the ability to write clean copy, but has a thorough understanding of the business issues. He takes the time upfront to ask the tough questions of the client and address the strategic issues that affect the quality of the final product. When he delivers his copy, you do not need to spend the time re-working. It is done well and is very accurate. I would highly recommend him to any company. He is a true professional and a pleasure to work with.”
—M.S, executive director, Invesco

His patience and persistence resulted in an incredible project.”
