Ashok Fernandez

Appreciate that you take the time to understand what it is that needs to be done but are practical about the fact that there are legal/technical implications that may drive some aspects of the design.

Victoria Vivas

You are a team player and often go beyond the scope of your work to support others complete tasks that benefit everyone.
