“Steven and I have worked on several projects together in the MBA program at San Jose State University. Time and time again, he has proven to be an extremely valuable asset within the various groups that we've been a part of together. He is reliable, trustworthy, and efficient. However, what sets him apart from many people is his creativity. Steven is constantly thinking outside the box, and he has the ability to competently communicate all of his ideas effectively to just about anyone. If you are looking for a team player who always has something fresh and innovative to bring to the table, I highly recommend Steven without any reservations.”
