"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) "Richard is my go-to guy for all things financial. Hes a very good writer and an enterprising reporter. Hes especially good at putting new spins on familiar ideas, and delivering stories that are perfectly targeted to my reader.
