Miquiel Banks has helped me with some very complex projects over the course of several years. In every 
single case, he has delivered. Not only has Miquiel delivered, but he has, in each case, exceeded my

Miquiel has read my screenplays, books, and essays and given very detailed, in-depth
feedback  about things that could be changed and corrected to make for a much more improved product. 

Friend,  Fellow Professional, and expert, this man has consistently made life easier for me through his dedication to excellent work. 

I would willingly recommend Miquiel to anyone I know.

- Michael Marks, Director/Writer of Angel of Hate
Winding my way through the confusing labyrinth of formats and measurements and technical specs of the cover for our book was daunting and discouraging. 

Miquiel stepped in and in a very short time had our covers re-worked to fit the publishing protocols and we had the book up on line and available in both e-book and print-on-demand formats. 

He provided a smooth transition from our visual and informational ideas to an actual book people can hold in their hands. 

Thanks so much, Miquiel, for helping get our book out to the world.

I worked with Miquiel for a little over a year, and in that time I learned to count on him in many ways. First and foremost, Miquiel was reliable and consistent with his production; I could always count on him to deliver his projects on-time and to-specifications. 

In addition, Miquiel was and continues to be an innovative and dynamic problem-solver and critical thinker; when researching solutions, I would often consult with him, and frequently he would recommend a new cutting-edge tool or solution I hadn't considered.
Miquiel is an exceptional writer, a diligent colleague, and a dependable resource for innovation solutions to complex problems.

I would have no reservations about recommending Miquiel for any tech writing job at any level.
