Recommendations that I have graciously received

"Chad gets it. And he gets it done, lots of it. He's one of those rock solid co-workers that you can utterly rely on to take your vague, not-that-constructive aspirational directions and make something much better, meaningful and effective out of them. I worked with Chad for about seven years, we developed tons of user experience optimizations driven by the UX and design solutions he created and/or led his staff to produce. He is expertly effective at finding the sweet win-win spot where enhancing user experience equates to improving conversion rates and engendering customer loyalty."

"I worked with Chad on several large projects at VEGAS.com, and would describe him as an A+ usability dude with 5-star design chops, the organizational skills of a project manager, the zen temperament of a monk and the easy-going, good-natured, go getter spirit of a Canadian. He's one of those rare star players that can fit in and excel anywhere. Portland is lucky to have him!"

"Throughout my experience with Chad he is always going above and beyond what is asked of him. He also continues to introduce new and better technology so that the website can be the best possible. Chad manages the entire User Interface team as well as other project initiatives that require User Interface insight. He delegates appropriate tasks and timelines. His team respects his acumen and experience. Chad has a zest for life and has a variety of interests. He can relate to people in many ways and on many levels. I would without any reservation recommend Chad to you. He would be a tremendous asset in any company."
