nothing obvious could possibly be important

Rick and I met in 2011 when he hired me as the Director of Outreach for Juanele, an online, bilingual arts and culture blog with a focus on Buenos Aires, Argentina.


As a mentor, Rick generously provides his time to offer constructive feedback (especially on written work) and actively listens to collaboratively identify solutions to challenges.


Together, we developed a guided art tour that successfully engaged hundreds of locals and tourists. Rick is a talented, natural storyteller, and his attention to detail, love of art and design, and warm personality captivated participants.


Sometimes I think people attended just to hang out with him for a few hours.


In addition to being a stellar human being, he is an expert writer and website developer who consistently completes tasks and projects in a complete and timely manner.

I’ve always admired Rick Powell for his many creative talents. He is a skilled writer and captivating storyteller.


As a long-time reader of his, I also appreciate his photography skills, which bring additional depth and insight into his stories, reviews, and essays.


Rick is extremely creative and this creativity shows itself throughout many mediums.


Rick is very entrepreneurial and tech-forward. He is a skilled digital native who can spin up quality, appealing sites.


His design aesthetics speak for themselves, which shouldn’t be surprising given his depth of knowledge about the arts.


He has created, operated, and successfully exited a business in the tourism industry, and I look forward to what his next projects will be.


Rick is a good friend, a great writer, and a skilled creator. I enjoy working with him.

I recommend Rick Powell for his great passion for teaching English. He is proactive and a very well-qualified conversationalist on any topic you want to share.


I have been meeting with him for only three months and my fluency has improved. I feel much more confident talking to others in English.


He is a globetrotter, so he has a wide variety of experiences with people, places, and especially food that makes any conversation very interesting, respectful, and worthwhile.


I am happy to recommend Rick Powell to anyone who needs a skilled English teacher.

I am a small business owner with little "IT" background, Rick has been invaluable to me and my business.


He got my first website up and running in a fraction of the time I have seen others work. I was so impressed I signed up for his annual support plan. This was a very smart move on my part.


I have very little time to waste figuring out the internet and Rick was always there to help me out and do it for me so I can focus on my business.


I have referred Rick to several colleagues and plan to continue.

Rick is fabulous, honest, and very good at what he does. He is always there to help when needed.


He thinks ahead and outside of the box and just last week managed the moving of all of our websites to a secure and affordable hosting site.


He's responsive and professional and we're in beginning discussions about updating our clinic website.


He's in the "know" design-wise and has an amazing eye.


I honestly can't recommend him enough.
