“Working with xm|creative has been a wonderful experience. They listen to you and hear your ideas, then make them come to life. They turned my scattered ideas into powerful communications. I highly recommend working with them on any marketing, design or branding project.”

“As Vice President of Marketing and an owner at efi Sports Medicine, I had the great pleasure to work with Steve as an Art Director and Designer, brand strategist and creative mentor for the past 10 years. I can wholeheartedly recommend Steve for any creative position with regard to graphic design, production, art direction and branding both in web and print. Steve would be valuable asset to any organization or team, as an employee or contractor.”

“Steve is a great designer and is organized as anybody in that position would need to be, but he's also got this knack for never losing his cool, even when under great deadline pressures. It was wonderful knowing he wasn't going to have a melt down when things got hectic. I appreciated how smoothly things ran, even in adversity, and he was good at raising the morale for those around him. I also enjoyed watching him take on new skill challenges and nail them on a regular basis- even if it required long, long extra hours. He'd just shrug and do it- and it would turn out great.”
