Turkic Stela, by Katrina Swendseid-Ang
Copy editor for a 298-page archeological/anthropological academic text on Turkic memorial stones.

“I retained Daniel as an editor for my academic book project. The material brought forward pressures of content and time that not every editor would be able to address well. I sought a professional who could confront challenges calmly while thinking flexibly and editing clearly. After considering three editors, I selected Daniel. Our intense textual work continued for over two months, and I had no reason to regret my choice.”
