He stayed awake into the night to fix the small bugs that I noticed / small change requests that came up. I have no hesitation to recommend his services. I look forward to working with him again.

Employee of the Year (2011)

Louisville Laptop

I was awarded the Employee of the Year in December 2011 for my hard work in the Dixie Highway store. This store was located about 40 minutes from my home, I was there daily from 10-7, and often times much later than 7. I turned the store around from a near loss to a highly profiting location.
