“Fred and I worked together for multiple projects. He was very good in writing test plans and test cases. It was very easy for me to automate the tests designed by Fred. He was very detail oriented. If I get a chance, I would be happy to work with him again”

Director of Product Management, BigFix, Inc. – Managed Fred indirectly at BigFix, Inc.
"Fred worked for me as a SilkTest Consultant for six months. He was specifically hired to implement, from the ground up, a Silktest QA automation framework based on our core product. The resulting framework is object-oriented and data-driven, utilizing spreadsheets. He also trained our automation team to maintain and extend the framework and our QA Engineers to build test suites using it. Fred is very knowledgeable about SilkTest and is an expert in building SilkTest frameworks. I am very satisfied with the work he did. He was professional, dependable and highly productive. I recommend him to anyone who needs a robust, maintainable SilkTest QA automation framework developed."
Director, Quality Assurance, Introscope, Computer Associates / Wily Technology – Managed Fred at CA Wily
"Fred designed, coded, and managed the installation of a complete SilkTest and Perl based, object-oriented data-driven (from Microsoft Excel spreadsheets) software QA automation framework, supporting different variations of Ditech Networks’ Java based NetConsul EMS (Element Management System) applications. These applications each allow mobile telecommunication service providers to monitor and provision Ditech’s Voice Enhancement and Echo Cancellation devices across an entire network from a single point of control on either a Windows or Solaris workstation. Following the completion of the NetConsul EMS project, Fred also applied the same re-usable SilkTest framework code to the Ditech Networks’ VQM Report, a browser based call monitoring and logging reports application which interfaces with the NetConsul EMS applications. I highly recommend Fred for any software QA automation framework or GUI consulting contracts without any reservation. Please feel free to contact me, I would be happy to share my positive experiences with Fred, both at the technical and interpersonal level."

Director SQA at Bridgestream, Inc. – Managed Fred at Extensity / Geac
"Fred is a QA automation expert that I would hire again and again. He wrote a very comprehensive test automation suite in Silk Segue for a new product at our company. His productivity was excellent and the quality of his work was also excellent. Fred's automation suite was done in a very modular fashion so that it was easy to change when the product changed. Fred will always tell you the truth and is good about finding good solutions for complex issues."
Director of QA at MarketTools, Inc. – Managed Fred at Extensity / Geac
"I worked with Fred at Extensity (later Geac) for 3 or 4 years as part of our Silk-based test automation group. Fred came in and completely overhauled our approach to automation, using spreadsheets to drive data and even test flow, and writing extremely flexible and powerful code. As the dot-com bust deepend and layoffs continued, I went on to other areas and Fred became the automation department more-or-less by himself. I would whole-heartedly and without reservation recommend Fred for any test automation position."
