“I have been a professional writer for more than 30 years. Over that period, I have dealt with dozens of editors. I can say without hesitation that David is one of the best editors I have ever worked with. He embodies everything you want in a good editor – a sharp sense of a piece's strengths and shortcomings; an outstanding capacity to recognize and suggest concrete improvements (often stunningly creative); a collaborative approach that promotes open discussion and reflection; a commitment to making each piece the best it can be; and a warm and supportive personality.”

—Don Sawyer, Principal, Northern Education Services Associates


     “...one of the best collaborations of my writing career.”

—Sara Falconer, author of "Saints or Scabs? The impact of volunteer in New Orleans" (Briarpatch Magazine, November 2009) 


     “David not only quickly turned around drafts; he just as deftly sharpened arguments and steered me away from many mistakes.”

—John Peters, from the acknowledgments of Boom, Bust & Crisis: Labour, Corporate Power and Politics in 21st Century Canada (Fernwood, 2012)


     “…one of the brightest young editors anywhere.”

—Murray Dobbin, author and columnist
