He breeds good relationships with clients at all levels of an organization from executives to end users. He is very personable and at ease in front of groups for presentations. Don would fit into any company for managing projects.

    Dwayne Mitchell Director Consulting Services at Bentley Systems
  • Don is a multi talented individual with strong technical skills complemented by an outgoing approach. He is focused on leveraging technology to it's fullest. I was quite impressed when he took his mundane daily task of reporting across multiple systems and streamlined it via an Access app which he then shared with the team.

    Elly Hoinowski Director, Consulting Services at Bentley Systems
  • Don is a valued member of the consulting team that supports our ministry. I appreciate Don's initiative, as he engages people to draw out details that will enhance the personality of the writing and is genuinely interested in their stories, always seeking another way to share newsworthy and interesting stories with the wider community. He is timely and creative in finding new approaches to engage our audience.

Don's artistic balance of website content of descriptive narrative, photography and graphics portrays a professional snapshot of my companies. I highly recommend Don's technical consulting for companies looking to brand a new image.
