"Writing for custom publications requires flexibility, ingenuity and professionalism, all of which Rick demonstrates in spades. His ideas are well-targeted and his research and interviewing skills are thorough. The copy I get from Rick is clean and engaging, and he responds to comments and requests from me and my clients quickly and successfully. Throughout what is frequently a long and constantly evolving editorial process, Rick always keeps his ego thoroughly in check."

-- Beth Helfont, Managing Editor, Dow Jones Content Lab (formerly SmartMoney Custom)
