What others say about me or the products I work on:

"You've been such a dependable, friendly, informative partner to our website development process, and I just wanted to send you a note to say 'thank you.'"

- From a product owner of a large scale website redesign where I served as the lead UX architect.

"I've appreciated Guy's enthusiastic-but-calming presence ..."

- A former supervisor of mine
“Our customer service department gets anywhere between 3,000 to 5,000 calls monthly from our members and potential members. They said that their calls about the website have decreased dramatically. They used to get calls about navigation or how to find something. Since we launched the site, they have gotten none; all the calls they have gotten regarding the website are positive feedback.”
