Testimonials

“To put it plainly, Brian is the boss I wish I still had. He's one of the few people I've met who has a perfect balance of being down to earth while staying wildly technical and creative. It's very refreshing to see a guy who can run a company, build the website, wire a full edit suite and then sit down at a station and crank out a commercial. People like this do not come around very often. Brian is a master of too many crafts to list, but if you need him to do anything, he can probably do it. Great guy, great mind and a great attitude. I give him my full endorsement and look forward to collaborating again in the future.”
Sean Falcon, senior compositor for Academy Award®-winning media production company Tippett Studio

“Brian had done scores of web-based jobs for me over the years, when I headed North American marketing communications for Siemens. Some were simple, but most were fairly complex database-driven projects. In all cases, he did his work on-time and on-budget, and with a lot of creativity (and patience when the unforeseen hiccups occurred). I highly recommend Brian.”
