Mike began work with enexdi nearly a decade ago following more than 20 years experience with the Federal government, State governments, and the United Nations. In support of 100+ proposal responses with enexdi, his skills as a program manager, capture manager, and technical manager strike a positive, complimentary role with client personnel. “I enjoy the technical writing and transitioning from interviews and bullet points to responsive prose; however, there is an enhanced attraction to sitting in the editor’s chair and facing an avalanche of chapters targeted for a short-term deadline. The resulting intensity drives focus, creates the clarity necessary to “see” beyond the multiple voices to craft a single, cohesive document–and delivers great work satisfaction when the bell rings.“
