References from Former Employers

“Alan brings great ideas to the table, but he’s also open to direction. His ability to collaborate with others is very refreshing, especially in this business. His outgoing personality and easy going nature allowed him to fit in immediately…Alan’s expertise is in package design, but while he was here he worked on much more than packaging. I think you’ll find him to be an asset on a number of levels. I highly recommend Alan for employment.”

“Alan is extremely dedicated, dependable, highly efficient, quick and superbly organized. He adapted quickly to our systems and procedures when he first arrived and has produced some of the best work to come from this shop. He is a self starter, works well with others and does not require management when provided with a goal. There are few people of his talent and caliber and I do not know of a more reliable employee.”
