"As a producer, I worked closely with Steve, who served as Lead Designer, at the Art Institute in a Special Projects course where we developed a game demo that was submitted to the student section of 2009 Independent Games Festival. Steve always brought professionalism, a positive attitude, a hard work ethic and solution oriented ideas to the project. The art and animation skills he brought to the project were outstanding. Steve is a self-starter and is eager to seek solutions when a roadblock is presented to him. I have endorsed Steve in the past to other developers and firmly believe that he will be an asset to any project that he joins." April 7, 2011
