"Eli is super friendly, great at what he does and awesome to work with. He was reliable and easy to get ahold of and has a really high degree of proficiency in the English language so I was impressed by his editing and proof-reading skills. He also gave me great suggestions for what would give my writing better rhythm and flow, so it really exceeded my needs and expectations."
