From the people who know and love him best.

“Alex was a fellow member of my ad and layout team at Mapperarti. Alex was initially hired as a Jr. Designer to work on print and advertising, but was quickly recognized as “jack of all trades" among the design team. His ability to work on all aspects of design was exactly what our team needed. Alex is extremely knowledgable and an excellent learner. The more he learns the more effort he makes to share his wealth of knowledge with the team to help us grow. His combined copywriting and design skills made him a wonderful designer with an eye for accuracy. He is extremely professional and proves his capabilities by handling and executing even the most difficult and tedious design tasks he is assigned. Alex is a respectable, hardworking designer that I would highly recommend.”

“It was an absolute pleasure having Alex on my team at Mapperarti. His passion for design is infectious. He is talented, thorough, and always hungry to learn and improve his craft.At Mapperarti we made maps for resorts and travel destinations. One team would create the map and another, the ads and layout. Alex’s skillset and efficiency as a designer allowed him to work on either team very effectively. He was able to pick up any slack on a project and helped us ensure we met our deadlines. I was also confident knowing that if was unable to speak with a client, Alex could represent the company and help them work through their design requirements. Alex has my highest recommendation and is an asset to any team.”
