"I would like to thank Chris for his immense support and patience to teach me the basic concepts of Javascript, at a time when I was fairly new to the Front-end world.

Chris' extensive knowledge and experience had always helped us in crucial times. He knows his work best. It was always new learning with him. Hope we can again work together someday!!"

- Neelofar Sultana, IoT Technical Consultant

"Chris was my direct manager at Stanford Federal Credit Union. He is a highly technical manager, who is always ready and enjoys getting his hands dirty with DevOps or coding tasks. His role was probably overloaded and the company decided we needed three people to replace him after his departure :-) He still did a great job balancing the tasks of managing a small team, providing highly technical help with TypeScript and frontend app frameworks, prioritizing urgent security and maintenance tasks, doing some DevOps improvements, performing code reviews, encouraging the team to document the systems in our Wiki and to keep learning the latest developments in our field. Chris is very geeky and excellent at determining root causes and the significance of issues. With his long and varied experience, he will make for a great architect or technical manager at any company."

- Georgy Vladimirov, DevOps

"Chris has been on the "Foothill College Computer Science Industry Advisory Board" for many years. In that capacity, Chris gave the faculty excellent advice on curriculum. But he also went above and beyond that commitment to speak to CS students in their classes, in their student clubs, and individually.

Chris is always willing to help others, and he can talk to people (and listen) about technical topics at whatever level is most appropriate."

- Elaine Haight, Technical writer

"Christopher M. is an incredibly sharp engineer whose skill is matched by a great, forward-thinking attitude. Chris always brings a ready answer to a question as well as the push to explore further. It has been my distinct pleasure to work with Chris and I would highly recommend his work."

- Forrest Swilling, Senior Product Designer
