I have known Joe for several years. We worked together as officers in a political party. Joe is a man of Great Character. He is intelligent, articulate and very respected by many. I highly recommend him for any opportunity.

Mark Houskeeper, President, MagHolder LLC

Joe quickly identified the issues and needs of my growing company and designed and executed effective solutions. His grasp of technology and the customer-facing aspects of the business were expert and he offered tremendous value to my company and contributed to its growth.

Carl Albright, Owner, GunDudes LLC

I was very pleased with the work Joe Levi did for me and my company. He went above and beyond for us by bringing different views and ideas that we were able to implement that we had not thought of ourselves.

Brad Hintze, Senior Director

Joe Levi was a terrific manager while at Totally Awesome Computers. His management skills were outstanding in interactions with customers and employees. Joe was always ready for a challenge and frequently exceeded expectation. While at Totally Awesome he worked in many capacities and excelled in each. In one capacity, as RMA manager, he dropped the RMA inventory by 50% and turned over $50,000 in damaged inventory into usable inventory in one month. The processes and policies he began while in that position saved the company many thousands of dollars every month.

As a member of the State Central Committee of the Utah Republican Party and the Executive Committee of the Davis County Republican Party, I have worked closely with Joe Levi. The things that stand out to me about Joe are his absolute integrity and his willingness to work hard and do the best job possible. I highly recommend him.

Bryan Hadlock, Mobile App and AI Developer

Joe is the go to guy for all things HTML and CSS, and he loves to teach people what he knows. He is passionate about technology and is always trying out new things. Joe believes in other people and helps them attain their goals. I credit him with my success in mobile development.

Bruce Hacking, Chief Financial Officer

Joe Levi was an incredible part of the TAC team. He excelled above and beyond in everything he touched. Not only would Joe complete an assigned project perfectly, but he would improve the way it was to be done the next time. Joe was great at being detailed and organized. He was fun to work with and in my opinion was underutilized. I would hire Joe again because of his expertise, willingness to learn, ability to excel, and great attitude.

Brett Clyde, Senior Database Administrator

As Joe Levi's colleague in the MIS department at Lifetime Products I saw his talent for web development first-hand. Joe is quick to find technologies that deliver results to his customers and is personable and friendly with them. I can also vouch for work Joe has performed on the IS&T department website for Weber State University. Joe is able to work under difficult conditions to achieve a quality product his customers are happy with.

Terry Musser, Manager

Joe Levi was a take-the-bull-by-the-horns, no-nonsense co-worker. I really enjoyed the time we worked together and hope to have the opportunity again in the future. He always jumped in with both feet and had an excellent attitude. He would be an asset to any organization fortunate enough to hire him.

Mike Dopp, Systems Administrator

Joe Levi is a detailed oriented individual with a keen eye on the future of web development as well as all things tech. Joe has great communication skills and knows how to keep on a project until complete. Joe grasps old and new technologies quickly and is not afraid to face a challenge. Challenges are not only a learning experience but found a as a great adventure. The knowledge and skills Joe has makes him a perfect candidate for any position he gets the opportunity to tackle.

Duane Koford, Senior Systems Administrator

Joe Levi is passionate about Web technology. He studies and knows how to implement websites that are standards compliant and cross-browser consistent. Joe has an understanding of CSS and other markup that is encyclopedic in breadth and depth. He puts effort into continually updating his skills and knowledge.

I had the pleasure of working with Joe Levi while at Totally Awesome Computers. Joe has always been organized and task oriented. He has great follow through and knows how to get things done. He has great time-management skills and always is thinking outside of the box. If there is anything you need that Joe fits the bill for then do not hesitate in asking him to work on your project. I hope that I will have the opportunity to work with him again.
