Working with Douglas is a pleasure because, not only does he combine years of skilled experience with genuine passion, hes always looking to learn other aspects of advertising. He always asks questions and is exceptionally proactive in exploring new ideas and discovering new solutions. Mauro Flammini, Global Content Specialist RIM
With minimum direction, Douglas understands and implements goals efficiently and effectively. I was able to count on Douglas, whether it was to take care of a customer when we worked at the Apple Store together or handle a client when he works freelance. He would be an asset to any workplace looking for a guy who gets things done - with no hand-holding. Mike Alfano , Mac Genius Apple
