For the past three decades a major portion of my livelihood has been earned by means of designing or “cleaning up” Microsoft PowerPoint presentations for various companies based in New York City.
“Chuck assisted me with a PowerPoint presentation on short notice and dramatically improved both the clarity and the appearance of the presentation. He worked through the weekend, and delivered the project on time and within budget.
Chuck also had many good suggestions on using images and design to make the presentation better.
I delivered the presentation to a conference of 200 people and was confident with the appearance and information flow contained in the presentation.
I would not hesitate to use Chuck again for a similar assignment or additional projects involving computer graphics and presentations.”

For new presentations, let me help guide you in translating your ideas and data into clear content that will interest and motivate your audience. Leveraging the knowledge I have gained from 30 years of experience will save you from making common mistakes and put you ahead of your competitors.
In designing presentations, my aim is always to create a visual background that integrates the identity of the company with the theme of the presentation, while making the content of each page as clear as possible (see examples at right).
For existing PowerPoint presentations, I can take an initial PowerPoint design that looks terrible and quickly transform it into a clean PowerPoint design that looks great: see a “Before and After” example of design.
Similarly, as a professional writer and editor, I can quickly transform and essentialize content: see a “Before and After” example of content (and design).
“Chuck’s improvements to our initial design were substantial.
By recreating my company’s logo from a low-resolution jpeg and using its elements for his re-design, he was able to focus his new design around my company’s branding.
His ability to format dense and difficult information in a way that makes it clear and intelligible has impressed my associates and in addition to his design skills, his contributions as an editor also improved the clarity of the presentation’s content.
During that time we have been working together, he has been flexible, easy to work with, and quick to turn around each iteration of the presentation we have given him, which has allowed us to save money and meet our deadlines.”
I enthusiastically recommend his work”
