Neil is extremely happy to provide contact information, (email and telephone details,) for executives and managers who have utilized his services on behalf of their businesses, and for technical staff that Neil has worked alongside or supervised. A list of contacts including recent employers, clients and peers can be made available upon request.

However, in order to avoid unnecessarily burdening these references too frequently, and to avoid the more aggressive recruiters who use references as a client or technical staff recruiting tool, this contact information will only be made available after a first interview. Please note this is not to say there are any issues with references; you will find Neil comes very highly recommended. This is merely to avoid degrading the goodwill of those who have been kind enough to agree to provide testimonials.

If you absolutely must check some references before a first interview, then please connect with Neil on LinkedIn, so you can read some of the many recommendations placed there by others.

Neil is a very detail oriented manager who is able to manage his team and his own workload without any issues. I enjoyed working with Neil as he was a straight shooter and was able to explain complex scenarios simply. With his wide breadth of expertise, he would be an asset to any development organization. Holly Collier, Project Manager, Demand Media.
During my time working with him, he was very detailed, organized and reliable. He is easy to get along with. He shares his knowledge willingly to benefit the tasks at hand. Chad Klem, Advanced Technology Group, Microsoft Corporation.
Neil is a pleasure to work with and is single minded about getting the job done, even at the expense of using his own time (sometimes way into the night) in order to facilitate a remedy. I reported to Neil rather often and found that he is fair, honest and easy to get along with. I would highly recommend him as he is one of the brightest people I have ever had the pleasure to know and work with. Rachel Kayne, Customer Service Manager, Demand Media.
Neil is one of the best bosses I've ever worked for. He was a technical mentor as well as a strong advocate for the team. His skills in software development, seeing the big picture architecturally, and the ability to successfully negotiate the corporate landscape made him an all-around star manager. I would highly recommend Neil as a manager and a developer in any organization. His commitment and dedication were unrivaled and I have no doubt he would bring the same 100% focus to any company smart enough to hire him. John Conrow, Senior Web Applications Developer, Demand Media.
