Kate Heatly

I have worked with Nick on several long-term projects now – not only has each run incredibly smoothly from start to finish, but I have also learned a lot simply by collaborating with him and watching him work! He is easily reachable, steadfastly reliable and comes up with creative ideas when you cannot!
