Tour Guide

John is an excellent tour guide. Very knowledgeable and more than your average guide about local and national history. Make sure to use his services if in Boston and buy him a good beer!

Thanks Patrick! I endorse this review.

Fantastic writer -- I always defer to him when it comes to putting pen to paper (or finger to keyboard in a Word doc!). He was born to write.

Great editor -- he always picks up the little things that I miss.

Creative Direction

Broadly speaking, very good at pulling together design, an aesthetic angle, and user experience. I mean, take a look at this site!

John's an amazing creative director! From having the initial vision, sourcing all of the pertinent resources and following the project through to completion, John is unabated. If you need creative direction done right, hire John and you'll not be disappointed. Thanks for the hard work and dedication
