"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, 2011Matthew ZeilingerStudent at Art Institute of Pittsburgh
"I’ve had the pleasure of working on several projects with Matthew and time and again, he has impressed me with his creativity, vision, and leadership abilities as well as the utmost degree of professionalism. I can say without hesitation that Matthew will be a valuable asset on any team as he can help in many capacities as a creative team member and leader." March 10, 2010Steve (Student at Art Institute of Pittsburgh ) studied with Matthew at Art Institute of Pittsburgh
