Recommendations

Scott is very adept at programming, and his facility with C is quite impressive. He is very creative and intelligent, and excellent at out-of-the-box thinking. In addition to having taught Scott both basic Java programming and mathematics, I have contracted him for several projects over the past several years. In this professional capacity, he has never disappointed me.
