Business & Technical Consultant
A bona fide code warrior and user experience expert, Stephen was designing great customer experiences before he knew there was a word for it. He feeds his passion for simple, easy-to-use interactions by solving digital roadblocks in creative ways. His career took off in 2005 after helping launch a major brand redesign for XM Satellite Radio. Later, he led a bi-coastal team of developers for eBay, delivering multi-million dollar website redesigns and updates for clients such as Dick’s Sporting Goods, Kenneth Cole, Levi Strauss, Toys R Us, and many other top brands and retailers around the world. A natural-born problem squasher, Stephen digs his gig because it’s all about finding the right technology and mastering it to generate great results for clients.
What I Do
Having known Stephen and his expert graphic/web design skills, I recommended him for a website re-design for a connection needing his services. Stephen was able to complete an amazing website with great functionality and to the very particular liking of his customer. His easy-going personality also makes him very easy to work with.
Stephen is an absolute pleasure to work with. I go to him with development issues and he gives me straight forward, fast solutions. Stephen is a highly trusted developer who will do what it takes to get the job done. Whether he's juggling a ton of smaller projects or focusing on one large build he delivers his best.
Mr. Bair and I have worked on several web and design projects together. He has always been a great person to partner up with to tackle different design problems, and always very informative as a web consultant. Steve has been a true pleasure to work with, an extreme professional. I would highly recommend him to any client!
Steve and I have worked on both large and small Web based projects since we've been at GSI. For the years we have worked together, I've watched Steve grow into a solid performer who brings experience and a great "team player" attitude to work. I have watched Steve contribute within a development team, as well as excelling as a lead for his own large scale web projects. In all roles, he was adept at helping others understand methods, and development techniques, and always exhibits patience when doing so. He is detail-oriented and always strives to find the most appropriate solution to every problem. I am happy to give Steve my professional recommendation.
It was an absolute pleasure to work with Stephen. He is a strong team lead and has a solid understanding of web development strategies to resolve technical issues. He has a great work ethic and is willing to do whatever it takes to complete his assignment. Stephen has remarkably good interpersonal skills and is a lively and friendly person to have on the team. I'm glad to have gotten the chance to work with him
