detailed and enthusiastic. Mike is definitely a person I've requested to be on my team a number of times,

“Mike did a fantastic job of designing the logos on my site, working very efficiently and completing
all work well ahead of schedule. I was impressed with his preliminary "rough" ideas which actually
looked good enough to use by themselves! I'd definitely recommend Mike for his professionalism,
reliability and high quality of work.”
