I would like to recommend Grant as a candidate for a position with your organization. During my time working with Grant I found him to have outstanding work ethic and communication skills. I also consider him to be a kind, courteous person who makes an effort to get along with his colleagues and create a pleasant working environment. While part of our team Grant demonstrated very strong web development skills with a vast knowledge of WordPress. He can follow very strict design instructions with no compromise on the original vision or timeframe. He also has the ability take a project from start to finish with little direction yet still produce high quality work. Grant also brings with him a great desire to follow and implement systems that increase both individual and team efficiency. At every stage of a project, he's always looking to improve the way, not only he works but those around him work as well. I have no reservations in recommending Grant as I believe he would be a valuable addition to any company.
