I worked with Jeff for over 7 years, both as a teammate and as his manager. Jeff is one of those rare people who can play multiple roles - UI, UX, front-end development, and product/project management - he's a quadruple threat! Jeff has extensive experience across a breadth of industries and project types, and is always willing to learn new skills. Jeff both gets the job done and brings his sense of humor to make it fun - he is an asset to any team.
