    My clients continue to seek my services because I always make my work as huge and as fantastic as I possibly can. For links to my work please see my Clients section. I have often been applauded by my clients as "The man who can get to anyone at anytime" Because of my track record for getting phenomenal interviews with big names and big development houses such as my interview with Naughty Dog where I talked to a total of 11 lead developers for a production piece on Uncharted 2 which was then used to promote the sale of The Art of Uncharted 2 art book by Ballistic Publishing
