Carl’s skills are first rate; that’s how I came to know him at The New York Times. One of his gifts is locating the writer’s true meaning within any initial draft. Carl respects the writer’s voice while shaping all copy into clear, elegant English. The result is polished writing, perfectly understood by the reader. Yet Carl further stands out as a collegial team member. No matter what stage a project is in or how tight the deadline, he keeps things on schedule and with a smile — a true pro. He gets my highest recommendation as a wordsmith and colleague.
