"John has helped me tremendously as a writer. Our private coaching sessions working on my narrative scripts have been incredible. Not just helpful, but FUN! I love getting feedback because it's honest, thorough, specific, and I can tell that it's really taking my scripts to the next level. His notes aren't overwhelming or daunting. He explains them clearly so you are excited to jump in. Often he will say something that clarifies and crystallizes something that's very obviously in my material that I wasn't even able to articulate myself. But by him calling it out, I get to go, "Yeah, that's right! That is happening. Let me build on that idea". 

He does such an amazing job of helping you sharpen your material while still staying true to your voice. He doesn't impose his voice or point of view but rather works to make sure that your voice is as clear and sharp as it can be. He is obviously a talented writer, but also a talented communicator who is supportive and honest. You can trust that he will bring your work to the next level."
