He's got a lot of experience in the field, as evidenced by his resume, which has links to samples (URL available on request). He also has experience working remotely
I can vouch for him and say he's a really good guy: bright, funny, diligent. We've never professionally worked together but have collaborated on personal projects and I can easily see how he'd be a great person to work with in the office.
If anyone has any leads or directions I can point him towards, let me know. Or let him know (his email is on the resume). And thanks in advance for any help that is offered!
ETA: I realized I shouldn't post the link to his resume without his express permission. So if you're interested in the link, let me know and I'll check with him.
