"Ben greats everyone with a smile. His positive attitude and can-do spirit make him a valuable addition to any project. I've had the pleasure of working with Ben on and off through much of his business life as an Internet professional. I've always been impressed with Ben's work ethic, talent for visual design, creative thought process, and entrepreneurial spirit."
John South, President & CEO
"How Does He Do It? The most amazing thing about Ben's work is that his work is always something new and different. Over the years I have seen so many one-trick-pony-creative-directors. But definitely NOT Ben. We have worked on many, many projects together and each is consistently his best work. He creates concepts that are not only aesthetically pleasing but highly interactive, well organized and right on strategy. On top of all this he really is a great guy and a pleasure to work with. Ben easily receives my highest recommendation for Creative Director."

Alan Lidji, Principal

"I have had the pleasure of working with Ben off and on since 1999. He is simply one of the very few people in our field who 'get it'. Ben is instinctively able to ferret out what works best on a site and usability testing proves his theories true. Ben is a fantastic visual designer with great illustrating skills as well. As he has grown in the space his skills have extended to managing both creative and technical teams, and he is able to effectively shephard competing projects and deadlines through the project lifecycle. He's a great thinker and a valuable asset to any team that seeks to be well rounded."
