"Kind words are a creative force, a power that concurs in the building up of all that is good, and energy that showers blessings upon the world." - Lawrence G. Lovasik
"I hired Richard as a freelancer and quickly realized he would be a great permanent addition to the team. He worked remotely and never missed a meeting or deadline. Richard is a very talented, reliable, and professional as well as easy to work with. I recommend him both as a freelancer and full time employee."
Richard Stanton President and COO, 76Hudson
"Richard is an extremely diligent developer and software architect as well as a very fun person to work with. I have enjoyed many long conversations with him about the future of the PHP ecosystem and object orientation in modern programing languages. He has had a large positive impact on the quality of the Sense Of Fashion code base, cleaning up large swaths of code on a weekly basis. His most momentous achievement was building his own well documented, and maintainable ORM to interface with our legacy PHP application. He was able to, in a short period of time, salvage parts of our old spaghetti code and create an unbelievably useful layer to continue our development with significantly less frustration."
John Paul VP of Software Development, 76Hudson
"I have had the pleasure of working with Rich for about six years now, and watching him grow as a developer has been nothing short of impressive. He is timely and dedicated, and displays a passion for what he does; if the finished product isn't up to the standards he sets for himself and his peers, he won't let it hit production until he's happy with it. Apart from his skills as a developer, Rich is a team player who always goes the extra mile to help out his teammates when they get stuck on a problem, and he brings an air of unity and comfort to any group he works with. I will always be happy to recommend Rich and look forward to working with him again someday in the future."
TJ Eastmond Director of Software Development, Spin Magazine
"Rich is an experienced developer with a breadth of knowledge in web development. He is able to succeed on individual assignments, sometimes with little direction. Rich also brings productivity and a great attitude to any team environment. I've worked with Rich on a number of projects, and he is always willing to do what it takes to see the project through to completion."
Mike Tramontano Lead Developer, eFashion Solutions
"Rich is the kind of developer who has a talent for understanding a complex set of requirements and implementing a straightforward solution. His positive energy, strong work ethic, and great communication skills are priceless assets to any team."
Dannel Albert Lead Developer, eFashion Solutions
"I worked with Rich in the capacity of implementing interactive modules into a platform he helped co-author. For the past few years, Rich and I have crossed paths quite a few times with the implementation of our Interactive Delivery Network, our Email Management Tool, and Search Engine Optimization Processes. I always find Rich not on enthusiastic in his work ethic, but also incredibly adept to current technologies and always willing to help conceptualize the "next step" for new ideas/projects. It was a pleasure to work with Rich, and I hope to again in the near future."
Christopher Bousquet Lead Interactive Developer, eFashion Solutions
"Rich is a great guy to work with. He has a very positive attitude and does not let the pressures of complex projects and tight deadlines overwhelm him or get in the way of him executing what he commits to. This has shown significantly over the last 2 years as he has, without much supervision, integrated with not only multiple payment methods such as clients' private label credit cards but also with a very complex retail sales auditing system. In both cases he worked directly with not only the vendors but with the clients to gather requirements, plan the implementation, and execute the final product. The success of these complex integrations is a testament to Rich's ability to coordinate and execute critical projects without the need of supervision which makes Rich a valuable asset to any team."
Michael Sanfiorenzo Senior Vice President of Operations, eFashion Solutions
"Rich is a great asset to any team. His hard work, loyalty and tremendous skill set are assets that any company would be lucky to have. I have tremendous respect for Rich and would hire him on my team any day."
Justin Schaldone COO/CFO, eFashion Solutions
"Richard is a extremely smart man that thinks his way out of his problems. Very hands on and always willing to help a colleague in need. Great person to work with and i can say hands down one of the hardest workers. Richard is a man devoted to his craft."
