Hard worker, always got story right

Mike is a hard worker. When I was assistant city editor, I could always count on him to produce good copy. He was open to ideas and suggestions, worked well on his own and in a group, and was an all-around nice person to collaborate with on stories and special projects.

While I was at the Forest Service in a public information officer capacity, Mike was a fair and balanced journalist who always got the story right. He was attentive to detail and cared about how the organization would be affected by his story. As a former journalist/PIO, that meant a lot to me. — Sally Spaulding, Public Relations Consultant
