“Jake is the best rails guy you will find. Same goes for ruby and social networking. He knows the mechanisms, the idioms, and the best practices. He will teach the team what he knows, and they will naturally look to him for leadership. He can govern a project with confidence (hard-earned), including every design, implementation, and support angle. He will fill any technical void with heart and competence”
Christopher Galtenberg, Senior Software Architect, Gaiam

“I immediately sensed how genuine, intelligent and enlightened he is. And when I had the fortune of witnessing him speak passionately about a project he was working on, only two words could accurately describe him: inspiring and visionary. Jake is a brilliant individual who not only brings experience, dedication and results, but also a highly positive attitude that inspires others around him.”
Joe Rogel, Site Producer, Gaiam

“Jake is an amazing person, both professionally and personally. He brings tremendous breadth and depth to any subject, not the least of which is systems engineering. I highly recommend Jake for any dynamic dev team and sincerely hope to have the opportunity to work with him again!”
Jackson Carson, Senior Art Director, Gaiam

“After working with Jake for over 2 and half years, I can say without reservation that Jake is not only a brilliant architect and developer, as a lead and manager his talents were just as evident. It was always easy to work with Jake on projects large and small, and hope to again some day.”
Ryan Gendron, Developer, Zaadz
