“Ullyses is creative and resourceful. He always leaves a lasting and positive impression on a business and it's clients. One of his greatest strengths is his flexibility which I have put to great use, whether it's designing TheraSim's logo or setting computer networks in E. Africa for global health contracts, Ullyses gets the job done. There are many people with ideas and many people that can implement but few that conceive of good ideas AND implement them. Ullyses is that person and I recommend him unconditionally.”
“Ullyses is as good as the come!!! He is a man of his word. He has an amazing heart. Very trustworthy! To me, those are some of the most important characteristics of a business man and a friend. I would recommend that any one and everyone that has an interest in doing business with Ully give him the opportunity to win you over!!!”

He surmounts any obstacle and leverages every opportunity. If you can dream it, he can tell you how to do it best.” Steven Tyler, AerosmithUllyses is best described as a "Creative Generalist" who has worked as a Sales Director, Creative Director, Novelist, Life Coach, Teacher/Trainer, General Manager, and more. He was an early adopter of the Interweb and is currently exploring transmedia storytelling (using multiple media platforms to tell different parts of a single story), focusing on the “why” more than the “what”. This method led him to what is now called “Inception Marketing”. He uses stories to plant ideas which inspire the user to be part of the story, as if it was their idea.
