Ian's writing talents were evident from the first article he wrote for me. He has a remarkable ability to jump into any topic, comprehend the subject matter, synthesize the key points, and produce text that flows exceptionally well for readers to truly enjoy.
Ian was prompt, well-organized, and thorough in his style and grammar editing for my work. I was particularly impressed by his attention to detail, and his line-by-line edits, suggestions, and comments were all extremely helpful. After making the changes he suggested, my writing was much clearer and readable.
I had a tendency to micromanage most content in the paper, but not Ian's. While my name was on the line, I trusted Ian's ability — as both a writer and an editor — enough to publish his work without review. Ian's mastery of language and style helped maintain the standard of quality our readership had come to expect.
When we were up against a tight deadline — that is, almost always — I could invariably rely on Ian for timely and meticulous copy editing and proofreading before we went to press. His dedication helped us publish days sooner than we could have otherwise.
