The Documentation Specialist

This website is intended to introduce myself and provide an overview of my capabilities and experience.

The examples shown are representative, not complete.

In many cases, I produced almost the entire portfolio of documents for a company- technical, business, advertising & promotion, and legal.

I offer a complete documentation service, from concept to prepress, from start-up to full production.

Browse through some of my projects by clicking on the appropriate link on the navigation pane to the left.


What I'm doing.

I am available for short and medium term contracts, anywhere in the world - I love to travel,  and I love new challenges and experiences (Baghdad and Kabul are off my list at the moment).

I am currently writing a complete suite of Policies and Procedures for a newly listed public corporation as a basis for their SOX compliance initiative. When we combine the P&P with a monitoring system to ensure the Procedures are followed, they will be very close to complete compliance.

I have just finished a Business Plan for a $700 million real estate development project and am writing a couple of others for totally different projects.

Thank you for visiting my site.

This is my blog, hosted at

 "Michael Holt has created an incredibly useful toolkit for understanding the basics of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act. It's especially attuned to the needs of non-financial experts who must grasp the fundamentals and key issues. A must-read for decision-makers."

-Rick Telberg, principal, Bay Street Group LLC, analysts and advisors to the financial industry.


I then wrote a sequel which has also been published.
