"Michael was absolutely instrumental as an editor in my work with him for my Ben 10 at BOOM! Studios. He was always incredibly supportive and affirming with my pitches and brought fresh ideas and a level of professional creativity and passion to the work. Michael was always ready to brainstorm and took the time to discuss plot points and character development through phone calls and detailed emails that were always thorough, timely and helpful. I highly recommend working with Michael as an editor!"
