These principles form the bedrock of my consulting practice.

I don't want to recommend Teejay and then not be able to use his services because he is in such demand. Teejay is like a good brunch place: You just want to keep it to yourself.
He really breaks the stereotype of the freelance developer. He's organized, communicates very well and is really funny. He adds a lot of value to a project by understanding what it is that's being built. He doesn't just churn out the work. He asks why and then will recommend a better solution.

There is nothing that would stop me from working with Teejay again. In fact, working with him has ruined me for working with other less capable developers.
He’s an amazing talent and a force to be reckoned with.

Finding full stack experts who can dive into the project and begin to immediately deliver results for problems that are not fully known at the beginning has been a challenge, and Teejay certainly delivered.

Teejay did an amazing job of exceeding our expectations.
I was able to engage with him immediately. And he made a a big impact, fast.

He delivered exactly what I wanted, a working MVP, quite quickly. And when I asked him to do something, he often showed me a better way of solving the problem.
Chill, yet fully professional at the same time, Teejay's communication skills are exceptional.
