Mark is our eyes and ears on the ground in the Quebec market. He can always be counted on to come up with engaging ideas and deliver content that elevates. Working with a journalist who can interview and write in both French and English is invaluable. Plus, Mark is a wonderful storyteller.

I have been using Mark as a freelance writer for more than 20 years. He is professional, easy to work with and his stories always arrive in great shape. His pieces have been nominated for, or won, several awards for us over the years.

If I had to sum up Mark’s sometimes award-winning contributions to our national newspaper over the past 20 years in just two words, they would be quantity and quality.  He’s a real pro – and fun to work with, too.

I have worked with Mark for nearly 20 years and he has always delivered well written, well researched and inspired features and news stories on a wide range of topics, often within tight deadlines. His creativity and insight into the market make his business articles a joy to read! I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Mark to anyone looking for a reliable, talented writer who is willing and able to tackle any subject.

Many of us fancy ourselves as writers, but Mark is truly a professional writer.  He can research most any topic and turn it into an engaging and polished story.  What’s more, he can do it on budget and on deadline.

Regardless of the topic, Mark gives each story his best effort. He has a keen eye for detail and ferreting out interesting information. I never have to worry about the quality story he’ll turn in. He respects deadlines and is always professional.
