"We were fortunate to work with Ron on a preview article for the first-ever HullabaLOU Music Festival at Churchill Downs. We were pleased with his thoroughness and overview, which ran in a tourism regional, multiple market supplement produced by the Louisville Convention & Visitors Bureau. Ron handled himself in a very professional manner. We would recommend Ron to anyone in search of a professional, free lance writer."
