"Bumper is a force. He is an extremely quick study, able to adapt to needs at an amazing rate. He is a go-to person. Bumper's presence has allowed our company to attempt new ventures that we would not have been able to approach without him."

- George, Design Director/Graphics Director

"The first time I met Bumper, he shook my hand and looked me in the eye. Sure everybody does that, but this was different. It was more like a hero arriving to save the day, than just a greeting. And that's what Bumper is, a hero. He's an amazing person to have on any team doing anything. He's got great leadership skills and technical skills. He can turn anything into a compelling video, animation, website, visual or audio. And he possess another important quality that is a huge asset to any newsroom: a tack sharp wit."

- Hassan, Director of Web Development

 "During the eight years I've had the pleasure to work with Bumper, I haven't found a more positive force in the work place. He is extraordinary in his diversity, always ready to learn more, is creative with his solutions and is able to work well with others — either by helping evolve an idea himself or recognizing a good idea from someone else. He's a great teammate."
