"Peter is the UX 'Hat Trick'! He has the ability to understand the intended user, design effective UX/UI solutions, while remaining in the boundaries of the technologies required in order to implement these designs. I have found working with him to be a constant pleasure. I am impressed with his ability to research personas to design unique solutions that meet required business needs in a manner that can only described as creative. Having been his previous employer, I would highly recommend him as a real asset to any UX team."

I’ve enjoyed the privilege of working with Peter for over a year on the Follett eFairs development team. During the course of his tenure, I noted Peter to be nothing short of an upstanding partner. He is a strong man of character, a personable fellow, a talented designer, and a whole person, mature with integrity. He’s absolutely a team member who devoted folks would unquestionably want on board. Peter certainly helps the larger world to feel more connected; more grounded. All this in addition to the invaluable aspects he offers as a well-seasoned UI/UX Designer.
