Joanna Kalliches, Associate Creative Director Merkley + Partners
I have had the pleasure of working with Ed for over eight years, both on staff and as a freelancer. He is a talented writer, a charming co-worker and a thorough professional.
In today’s economic environment, advertising, like many client services businesses, is more challenging than ever. Business is more competitive, staffs are leaner, clients are more demanding and time is of the essence. It’s increasingly important that we produce high quality work the first time and every time. Ed is and always will be the first person I call. I know without a doubt that he will deliver work that will delight clients no matter how difficult the assignment or how tight the schedule may be. And throughout many a long day and late night, Ed is a welcome presence. He is funny, conscientious, focused and dedicated. Whenever I receive a call from others in the business looking for freelance help, I do not hesitate to recommend Ed, and I have received many a thank you for doing so. He has an excellent reputation in the industry and is always in demand.
I've known Ed for 20 years and have worked with him for almost that long. He is by far my favorite writer to partner with. He loves coming up with ideas and is flexible enough to keep making them better. He always keeps his sense of humor and never lets a challenging assignment get the best of him.
He consistently advocates for good work, and takes an enormous amount of pride in a job well done.
