  • image of camackie Selenium Animation Project $300.00 USD

    “Chris is fantastic! This is the third animation project he has completed for us, and as always, he did a great job. As I've said before, he is extremely creative and has the ability to take complex subject matter and turn it into visual form. He's also an excellent communicator which is critical when dealing with technical subject matter. There is no doubt that we will hire Chris again.”
